J.M. Barrie DEATH CURSE.
I didn't know about the death curse. Did you? And that's just how the essay starts. This vision of J. M. Barrie's relationship with the Llewelyn Davies/du Maurier family is quite different than the one in Finding Neverland. Yowza. I'd like for Inspector Alan Grant to sort it all out for me.
Speaking of reading surprising things about authors -- I finally got around to picking up my Morte D'Arthur (I was thinking of that for The Big Read III, any takers?), and discovered in the introduction that Thomas Malory* may have written a good portion of it while in prison.
*If in fact he is the Thomas Malory who actually wrote it, yadda yadda yadda.
