if the authors are charming their autobiographies will be the same,
(I dont' know of "charming is the right word, maybe I mean intresting)

ps: ... I've recently brought in the basement 4 chairs, 2 armchairs, a coffee table ...
I need too more place

Laura, that’s what I need, a basement. It would solve a lot of problems. And yes, I think you mean interesting. But you could use any word, such us boring, or arrogant, or brilliant, and it would still be true.

Biographies are always interesting to me also; even from Hitler up to Gandhi..., and I compare them with their Radix-Horoscope in my encyklopedia of six thousends of famous people! (Do you have your exactly Birth-*Horrorscope*, William? If you know exactly your Birth-Day, -TIME, -Place for it, and send it by mali to me, I would like to do this for you and send you the drawing free)

Rudhi, you know I can’t resist an offer like that. I’ll send you those details and wait for the truth to emerge....

Being keyed up, I think, is instrumental to your problem.
