The book explores how a writer’s life that according to one of his closest friends was “in a sense uneventful enough, except for the wide range of its points of social contact, yet in fact charged and brimmed as few lives are with ceaseless adventure of spirit and intelligence” has become the focus of nine contemporary British and American biofictions. This new postmodern genre is analyzed from the perspective of the interest writers of today have taken in the life and work of Henry James, re-writing his biography in a way in which the stability of the biographical narrative becomes undermined and challenged, while the biographical subject acquires a new “life after death.”
