This biography gives a good overview of T.H. White's life and works but Sylvia Warner's writing style is sometimes difficult and dense. She is able to convey White's pain and emotional difficulties with vividness. I suspect White suffered from Asperger's syndrome in addition to alcoholism, and repressed homosexuality. She probably could have expanded the section on his childhood and adolescence. Of course the book centers on the Once and Future King. She provides insight and reveals nuances in his most famous work but doesn't explain why he didn't finish revising it and why he abandoned the Book Of Merlyn. I wanted to know why he altered the Sword in the Stone to it's detriment and why the publisher never included the Book of Merlyn in the Once and Future King if that was his intention.
