] Of the two ,I'd say that Tomalin is better for a first-timer who wants to remember more of JA's life after one read, and le Faye is the one to come back to again and again if you are really obsessed.
This is me. I have attempted to read a couple JA bios before and always got bogged down in names and places-- I think I stated earlier that this is the first bio in which I am able to keep the extended family members straight! There has been once or twice that I thought Tomalin had extrapolated a little too far, but I have no trouble recognizing fact from supposition. And on the whole, I enjoy reading another's interpretation of the few facts we have about JA. When I finish this and am more familiar with her life, I'd like to tackle le Faye again and hope to get more out of it the next time.
