naked honesty

by 99bonk on Dec 22, 2011

This volume brings together Diana Athill's previous books of memoirs, and includes an introductory section about her country childhood. Her honesty and clarity puts many other memoirists to shame. The style makes clear why she was such a successful editor at Andre Deutsch for so many years. What she writes about the many authors she dealt with is entertaining, not to say enlightening. I would recommend this book to anyone who aspires to be an editor - apart from the many who enjoy good writing and memoirs in general.
