Originally published in Great Britain in 1992 by Hutchinson, an imprint of Random House UK Ltd., London. Biographer, critic, and poet, Hamilton probes literary estate management and mismanagement through the centuries, from Donne and Shakespeare to Plath and Larkin. He entertainingly recounts battles between the protective and the curious--those who've sought to whitewash or keep reputations sacred, and those who've eschewed any bounds of privacy.
