Great biographies tend to take two forms. The first is of interesting people, who could be mediocre writers but still write a good life history simply because of the profound nature of the events they became involved in. The second group are people who, seemingly like us, write so well about life experiences that we are drawn along without the will or ability to put the book down until the very end. This book falls into both categories. Susan Alexander was a tennis player on the World stage, but writes without name dropping or garnishing her story with anything but a riveting biography. Timelines are interwoven throughout the book with an introduction at the beginning of each chapter of an early life in Australia, along with the meat and bones of the chapter detailing a young, international tennis star’s ups and downs in Europe. As the reader, progressing through the book, I’m holding my breath but I can’t look away.
This is one interesting woman, and this is the first of what I hope is a series of books from her.
