Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:

An award-winning author and reviewer describes her tomboy childhood, challenging Catholic school education, broken family life, marriage, struggle with chronic illness that rendered her unable to have children, and literary career.


Review:

"Mantel's voice, often gently whimsical, can also snarl with anger and bite with satire."

Kirkus, 07/15/2003

Review:

"Mantel tells us she wrote to lure the memories of childhood out of their domestic hiding places, at at last to exorcise them. I doubt she will manage that. Hers are very vital ghosts. What she has done is to invite us into their unquiet company. For that her readers (may they be legion) will be deeply grateful."

Inga Clendinnen, New York Times Book Review, 10/05/2003
