    *** Stephen D. gets it!*** Scroll down for answer***

    The Index Biography is a quiz pioneered by this blog and introduced in a previous post. The creator must find a biography of a famous individual from history, they must turn to the index and write down eight peripheral facts about the individual’s life. We offered up previously here Sheridan le Fanu and Joseph Stalin (he of ripe banana fame) and these might stand as examples. The reader on the other hand must identify who is being described. The prize  is a copy of a bizarre second hand book sent via Amazon: the last three prizes went to the US, to Australia and to Scotland (note sometimes I am a bit slow to get them ordered…) So who is this?
