Diana Athill, born in 1917, made her reputation as a writer with the candour of her memoirs; through her commitment, in her words, 'to understand, to be aware, to touch the truth'. In a celebration of her life and writing, "My Lives" brings together four of her best-loved memoirs in one volume, spanning her very English childhood, her life and loves during World War II, her publishing career at Andre Deutsch, and her reflections on old age. Introduced by Ian Jack, Diana Athill's selected memoirs are a remarkable testament to an unusual and fully lived life.

Review:

'There is a sense throughout Athill's works that you are making a new friend as much as reading a new story' Observer 'What sets her apart is the flagrancy and wit of her writing - her memoirs display a vivacious appreciation of the life she has lived and what is still to come' New Statesman 'Athill has always had a peculiar and attractive talent for communicating her pleasure in life' Telegraph Athill tells her own story lightly and delightfully' Daily Mail 'Diana Athill is one of our most captivating and truth-seeking memoir writers, and this hefty four-books-in-one collection spans most of her 92 years' Good Housekeeping
