Virginia Woolf published three books to which she gave the subtitle "A Biography":
- Orlando: A Biography (1928, usually characterised as a novel inspired by the life of Vita Sackville-West)
- Flush: A Biography (1933, more explicitly cross-genre: fiction as "stream of consciousness" tale by Flush, a dog; non-fiction in the sense of telling the story of the owner of the dog, Elizabeth Barrett Browning), reprinted in 2005 by Persephone Books
- Roger Fry: A Biography (1940, usually characterised as non-fiction, however: " novelistic skills worked against her talent as a biographer, for her impressionistic observations jostled uncomfortably with the simultaneous need to marshal a multitude of facts.")

Famous quotes containing the word biographies:
“Why I love the ancients so much? Aside from everything else, when I read them, the entire past between them and me unfolds at the same time. The hearts of how many heroes and poets may have been set on fire by Plutarchs biographies which now inspire me with their own and with borrowed flames!”
—Franz Grillparzer (17911872)
“Tis the gift to be simple tis the gift to be free
Tis the gift to come down where you ought to be
And when we find ourselves in the place just right
Twill be in the valley of love and delight.”
—Unknown. Tis the Gift to Be Simple.
