About this book
Published in a beautifully designed hardback edition, this memoir by one of our leading writers addresses ageing, memory, time, and a life in the 20th century. Erudite, elegant, moving and deeply enjoyable.
Reports from beyond the horizon of old age. This book looks at the context of a life and times, the history and archaeology that is actually being made as we live out our lives in real time, in her case World War II; post war penny-pinching Britain; the Suez crisis; the Cold War and up to the present day.
