In My Mind’s Eye: A Thought Diary by Jan Morris



ISBN: 9780571340927 Category: Tags: ,


‘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.
