*Universal Man: The Lives of John Maynard Keynes*

That is the new Keynes biography by the renowned Richard Davenport-Hines.  It’s not like most biographies I know.  The font is fairly large, and the presentation is non-comprehensive and fairly subjective.  It is more like reading the transcript of some very good talks on Keynes, and less of a trudge than many bios.  There is even a chapter on Keynes as lover, but actually quite serious and good, as it helps set the man in context.  For Davenport-Hines, Keynes was most of all a Cambridge Apostle.  This book will help you get inside the mind of Keynes, definitely recommended.
