Description
Autobiography has been an essential element of the London Review of Books since its founding in 1979, and this volume collects many outstanding pieces of memoir that first appeared in the LRB. Edward Said pays homage to the belly dancer and movie star Tahia Carioca, Lorna Sage remembers growing up with her grandfather during World War II, and Hilary Mantel tackles a strongman on her hospital bed. Here too, Julian Barnes writes about not getting the Booker Prize; Andrew O'Hagan confesses to his past as a schoolboy bully; Anne Enright describes her obsession with Henrietta Lacks, the woman whose cells grow in petri dishes around the world; and Terry Castle recounts her complicated friendship with Susan Sontag.
