Kathleen, do you have time to give us a synopsis of what she did say? I think it was our Ann that asked earlier on opinions on her biographies, and as yet, she has not been answered.
I have read Dierde Le Faye's book, and I found it jam-packed with info, but a bit dry. I've just got out the Park Honan one, and find it much more pleasant to read, and dealing far better with the question of where she got her characters from, but I havn't yet read enough of it to really form an opinion .
