Description
The biographer of George Orwell, Edmund Wilson, and Somerset Maugham here reveals how nine major literary figures attempted to integrate life and art in the context of marriage. Leo Tolstoy, George Bernard Shaw, Joseph Conrad, James Joyce, Virginia Woolf, Katherine Mansfield, D.H. Lawrence, Ernest Hemingway, and F. Scott Fitzgerald each acknowledged the claims of ordinary life and believed that marriage provided their most profound personal relationship. Though the lives of all these writers showed the strains of modern matrimony, their creative impulses were often directly inspired by their emotional and intellectual conflicts.

"These necessarily brief sketches of marriages between talented and frequently egotistic and self-destructive personalities are never dull. The quoted material and the facts have a bite, style and poignancy.... One is left with a series of fascinating and well-documented studies."Financial Times
