KIRKUS REVIEW

In this literary biography, Mr. Born is concerned with Jules Verne as writer. He describes Verne's family background and marriage briefly and then proceeds to a close outline of the man's literary life. Verne is portrayed as an unusually energetic person whose personal affairs were closely reflected in the novels he wrote. Mr. Born shows the author at work on some of his fiction and has provided insight into creative genius. A fine, informative career-centered biography.
