A beautifully reissued classic, a mixture of biography and memoir, from the author of "Footsteps". "Sidetracks" is a sister book to "Footsteps", conjured up from decades of 'wanderings from the straight and narrow' of his major biographies like "Shelley" and "Coleridge". It is a renewed examination of the strange and sometimes shadowy pathways of biography that have always fascinated him. "Sidetracks" pursues this quest through an extraordinary and eclectic assortment of Romantic and Gothic writers and personalities: some French, some English, some Dutch, some American, some major, some minor, but all made hypnotically alive and memorable through Holmes's transforming touch.
