Similarities between Bill Finger and me

As they research and write, some biographers develop a sense of identification with their subjects.

Bill Finger and I were nearly three generations apart—I remember how jarring it was when I asked someone if Bill liked the Beatles and was told he probably didn’t listen to any rock and roll—yet at times I saw myself in him, or vice versa:

  • not fond of driving (Bill never had a license, I waited for six months after turning 16 to get my license)
  • fond of extensive research and reference clipping
  • finance management not strongest suit
  • like Batman
