About the Author

After a distinguished career as a book editor, Diana Athill (1917-2019) won the National Book Critics Circle and Costa Biography Awards for her New York Times best-selling memoir Somewhere Towards the End. In January 2009, she was presented with an Order of the British Empire.

Reviews

"Like Athill's favorite paintings, her essays 'make you see, when you leave their presence, that everything has become more alive.'" -- Laura Miller - Salon
"Witty, candid...If you haven't read Athill, and open her latest book expecting serene reflections from a nonagenarian sipping tea in her garden, you're in for a surprise." -- Carmela Ciuraru - San Francisco Chronicle
"Enchanting...Diana Athill, 98, still has a few things to teach us about growing old with dignity and humor and grace...Astute and sparkling." -- Ann Levin - Associated Press
"So beautifully written and exquisitely detailed...[Athill] mines her memories of a life well-lived and generously lays them out on the page for the rest of the world to enjoy." -- Meganne Fabrega - Star Tribune
"Moving and always engaging...The sheer candour with which she writes and the overwhelming sense of a life fully lived are both quite marvelous." -- The Bookseller
