Reading Hershel Parker's Melville Biography. I don't mean his biography of Melville but his book about writing the Melville biography. He is concerned, though, with much more than Melville. He is really writing a fascinating study of biography as a genre and why it has incurred so much hostility. I'm reviewing the book for The New Criterion.
