About this book
A new book from the author of "The Last Hundred Days", this features short, Proustian pieces on childhood and how the places of our childhood are embedded in us. Alert and affectionate, full of great curiosity and humour, it provides fresh ways of looking at how we grow up and start to make sense of the world.
Disarming, eloquent and illuminating, this meditation on place, time and memory, could only have been written by a poet, or a novelist, or a professor. It features fresh ways of looking at how we grow up, how we start to make sense of the world.
