I ordered the book, Faure by Vuillermoz thinking it was a bio of Gabriel Faure. Much to my disappointment only the first 46 pages out of 170 were biographical and that very sketchy.The rest of the actual text is an evaluation of the composers work, which was somewhat helpful for someone looking for new music to assimilate, but be warned that the author is almost worshipful of everything that Faure composed and the book is not only not fulfilling as a bio but is suspect as a discussion of Faure's oeuvre.
