I think we are beaten into submission into the idea that the day-to-day lives of people and our interest in that is de facto jejeune.  I am beginning to re-become an old-fashioned feminist on this point I think (very 2nd wave!) as I believe more and more how people act is as important if not more so than what they say or even write.  This is not to say someone 'bad' can't write something 'good', etc...but I do think people, especially people like D&G who were so innovative in the way they thought, wrote and collaborated are of interest as human beings.  I mean, they are in fact pointing to new ways to live, create and act in their books, don't you think?

Any thoughts on this in general?

But, having said all that, I'm also aware as CJ Stivale said, the biography is of course an approximation, so we can't be sure how anyone acted... Still, I don't think interest in the specific is jejeune.

Also, Charles, it is extremely interesting to read what you say about the chapters of Intersecting Lives of which you had some personal knowledge.  I'm only part way through the book myself, entirely an outsider, and have no way to  judge its accuracy.  Like Julia, I'm grateful just to have some knowledge of specifics. I have always had a certain slightly jejeune interest in the day-to-day lives of the people whose works I've studied--not very intellectually sophisticated, but I can't help it.  :-) One detail I found rather charming was that Guattari's nickname at La Borde was apparently "Speedy Guatt," because of his indefatigable drive and energy.  I can imagine him running around yelling at the nurses that it was their turn to do the dishes.  But then it couldn't have been "Speedy Guatt," m
