The truth of a life is more than a sum of the facts. A life is not merely about what a person does, but also about what a person thinks, feels and values, and how he or she affects the people and events around him or her, because ultimately what biographers and readers want to know is what a persons life means. And meaning involves more than how a person see’s himself or herself or even what a person does. Meaning also involves how others see a person, and the perception of others is not always based on the truth of a life or even the complete knowledge of it.
