Summary

According to Bernard Shaw, Winsten as a biographer "is inaccurate as to facts, wrong in his judgements, self-complacent and without humour...". Never is this more evident in Winsten's biography of Salt. Despite having borrowed Salt's papers from Mrs Catherine Catherine Salt, which he never returned, he did not date the letters or events and at times he invents large passages of dialogue.
