Robb tells us to put down his book and read Les Miserables. Read both. Hugo lifts spirits. Robb will open your mind and heart. His is the best biography of Hugo in English and probably the best single volume one in any language.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
A breathtaking account of Hugo's passions and torments, idealism and opportunism--written with unparalleled wit and cynicism worthy of Hugo himself. If only all biographies could be this compelling, but perhaps few lives are.
