the books behind books

I just finished up interviews with Helen Hanson and Philip Chen. One of the things that struck me with both of them (and has impressed me with other author interviews I've done in the past) is that the writer behind a book, the person behind a book, is also like a book. There's fascinating stuff in 'em. Unexpected developments. Unusual backstory. Drama. Tragedy. Triumph. You name it.

I'm not sure what I'm aiming at here, but it certainly is worthwhile to take a closer look at the authors themselves around us.

Yeah, Stephen King's life is fascinating. I wasn't much of a fan until I read his autobiographical book on writing. That look into his life made his writing compelling for me. Tolkien as well. I suspect he couldn't have written anything close to LOTR without having been the person he was.
