In My Mind’s Eye: A Thought Diary

£8.99

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