I'm currently reading Vyvyan Holland's autobiography and let me tell you it's sad. What's even more tragic is the matter-of-fact way in which he writes of his separation from his father and about how many people tried to profit from his father's name. This was one sad young man. I realize he was older when he wrote it, but I can't imagine a child having to hide his identity like that.

Just wanted to share that. The book isn't widely available; I had to borrow it from a college library through our inter-library loan program.
