KIRKUS REVIEW

This big bonanza (circa 900 pages) is introduced by two appreciations, Joseph Henry Jackson's tribute to the man who ""dignified and popularized the biographical novel"" and Allan Nevins' comments on Stone's research techniques and the spirit of historic truth"" he maintains. This is followed by Stone's own prefatory remarks on the genre he developed as ""bondsman to the factual truth"", then extensive ections from his biographical novels, his biographies, one history, two straight novels and two works categorized as ""belles-letters"". This publication coincides oughly with the 20th anniversary of the still selling Lust for Life.
