About this title

Synopsis:

The Booker Prize-winning author of Cleopatra's Sister recalls growing up in English in Egypt in the thirties and forties and examines the influence Egyptian culture had on her as a child of a colonial society.

From the Back Cover:

A poignant and bittersweet memoir from the distinguished British fiction writer Penelope Lively, Oleander, Jacaranda evokes the author's unusual childhood growing up English in Egypt during the 1930s and 1940s. Filled with the birds, animals and plants of the Nile landscape that the author knew as a child, Oleander, Jacaranda follows the young Penelope from a visit to a fellaheen village to an afternoon at the elegant Gezira Sporting Club, one milieu as exotic to her as the other.
