In My Mind's Eye : A Thought Diary, Hardback Book

In My Mind's Eye : A Thought Diary Hardback



AS HEARD ON BBC RADIO 4s BOOK OF THE WEEK'Morris is one of Britain's greatest living writers.' The Times'Fascinating ... valuable and rare. This book is a writer's constitutional.' Kate Kellaway, Observer 'I have never before in my life kept a diary of my thoughts, and here at the start of my ninth decade, having for the moment nothing much else to write, I am having a go at it.

Good luck to me.'So begins this extraordinary book, a collection of diary pieces that Jan Morris wrote for the Financial Times over the course of 2017. A former soldier and journalist, and one of the great chroniclers of the world for over half a century, she writes here in her characteristically intimate voice - funny, perceptive, wise, touching, wicked, scabrous, and above all, kind - about her thoughts on the world, and her own place in it as she turns ninety.

From cats to cars, travel to home, music to writing, it's a cornucopia of delights from a unique literary figure.
