Description: Can biography and autobiography tell us the truth about an individual? Missing Persons suggests that biography and autobiography are based on fictions, both about the person and about what is possible to know about any one individual.

Mary Evans organizes her study into chapters which consider particular kinds of auto/biographical writing, such as work on the British royal family, George Orwell, and Simone de Beauvoir and Jean-Paul Sartre. She explores how individuals have acted to construct themselves, using case studies to highlight the different choices made and the social influences involved, and demonstrates the absences and evasions -- indeed, the "missing persons" -- of biography and autobiography.
