About the Author

James H. Jones is the award-winning author of Bad Blood: The Tuskegee Syphilis Experiment and Alfred C. Kinsey: A Life. An independent scholar, he lives in San Francisco, California.


"The Jones biography remains definitive." Elaine Showalter, The Times Literary Supplement "Jones's biography-forthright, scholarly, original, magisterial -constitutes an 'atom bomb' of its own. Its fall-out will be enduring." Roy Porter, The Times Higher Education Supplement "Without being sensationalist, this is a sensational book." Laura Cumming, The Guardian "...a magisterial account of a driven man and the repressed culture in which he had to work." Blake Morrison, Books of the Year, Independent on Sunday "This painstaking biography has explained why Kinsey had a driving need to explain to men everywhere that whatever they did about sex, whatever they imagined about sex, they were still part of the human race and not hateful outsiders unfit to call themselves men." Claire Rayner, The Observer "...a fascinating account..." Veronica Groocock, New Statesman "[A] masterly biography..." James Bone, The Times "James H. Jones' life, first published in 1997, is the definitive account... Jones shows that 'Prok' was a repressed homosexual, fixated on masochistic masturbation who began his career as an authority on the gall wasp, a tiny, flightless insect... Jones paints a compelling portrait of a model of mid-American respectability whose secret life found its expression in ground-breaking research." Robert McCrum, The Observer 13 February 2005
