Description

A Sunday Times Top 10 Bestseller

In this remarkable memoir of love, loss and literature, acclaimed biographer Claire Tomalin turns her eye to another fascinating literary life: her own. She tells of a wartime childhood, Cambridge friendships and an early marriage to a brilliant journalist. After his sudden death in a war zone, Claire is left to raise their four children alone – all while leading a trail-blazing career in literary London.

A Life of My Own is the tale of a woman overcoming obstacles both rare and routine to live not only a good but also a meaningful life.

‘A dramatic and absorbing survivor’s tale’ Hilary Spurling, Spectator

‘Unexpectedly moving. Tomalin’s story filled me with a kind of awe. Every page is valiant, every paragraph full of pluck’ Rachel Cooke, New Statesman

‘She has been tested in ways few women are. This memoir is a triumph’ Valerie Grove, Literary Review
