9780140042078: Something of Myself: For My Friends, Known and Unknown (Modern Classics)

"Something of Myself", Rudyard Kipling's memoir of his writing life, was composed in the year before he died and published posthumously. Its spare, polished phrases and masterly anecdotes offer a unique insight into the mind of this divided man who upheld the Victorian imperialist values of duty, patriotism and obedience, and yet sympathized with outlaws and children. Kipling describes with unforgettable vividness his bitter childhood years in the 'House of Desolation', his apprenticeship to the craft of writing through the hard grind of journalism in British India, his beloved parents and his pride in his own work. Reissued with a new introduction by Jan Montefiore, author of the brilliant recent study "Rudyard Kipling", this memoir is indispensable reading not only for Kipling admirers, but for anyone who cares about the art and craft of writing.

About the Author:

Nobel Prize winner Rudyard Kipling (1865–1936) was born in India but came to England as a child. He is perhaps best remembered for his children's books Just So Stories and The Jungle Book, and for his novel Kim.
