Sarah Bakewell rejected the conventions of cradle-to-grave biography in her
book How to Live, or a Life of Montaigne in One Question and Twenty Attempts at
an Answer (2010), in which the table of contents repeats the question twenty
times.22 Lucy Hughes-Hallett borrows liberally from the novelist's toolbox in her
book The Pike: Gabriele D'Annunzio: Poet, Seducer and Preacher of War (2013),
which switches back and forth to different periods of D'Annunzio's life.23

questions himself or herself, 'How to live?', and may go on doing so as life.
Certain ideal–typical and abstract outlines of a liberal society have been offered
above in which globally people might be free to supply themselves with answers,
but it is time to change register. How to Live: A Life of Montaigne in One Question
and Twenty Attempts at an Answer, was the title Sarah Bakewell (2010) gave to
