He identifies several recent biographies that purport to explain a life by uncovering or exposing its secrets, such as Michael Holroyd's biography of Lytton Strachey, revealing Strachey's sexual history, followed by equally revelatory biographies by Nigel Nicholson of his parents, Harold Nicholson and Vita Sackville-West, and by Lyndall Gordon of Virgina Woolf, showing that many contemporary biographies follow a psychoanalytical model, peeling back the public layers of a personality to get at the childhood traumas and emotional pain under the surface.
