Alexandra Styron wrote a fascinating biography of her father, William Styron, a fiction novelist. After his hugely successful novel Sophie's Choice, was published, Styron, apparently spent the rest of his life attempting to write another long novel on the subject of war. He received instant success with his first novel Lie Down in Darkness. He suffered from depression. This book is filled with wonderful anecdotes about Styron and his family, and should be required reading, not only for Styron's fans but for the dynamics between a loving daughter and her father. I thoroughly enjoyed this book for many reasons.
