In My Minds Eye – by Jan Morris (Hardcover) Best


In My Minds Eye – by Jan Description:

In My Minds Celebrated as the greatest descriptive writer of her time (Rebecca West) Jan Morris has been dazzling readers since she burst on the scene with her on-the-spot reportage of the first ascent of Everest in 1953. Now the beloved ninety-two-year-old author of classics such as Venice and Trieste embarks on an entirely new literary enterprise–a collection of daily diaries penned over the course of a single year. Ranging widely from the idyllic confines of her North Wales home Morris offers diverse sallies on her preferred form of exercises (walking briskly) her frustration at not recognizing a certain melody humming in her head (Beethovens Pathétique incidentally) her nostalgia for small-town America as well as intimate glimpses into her home life. With insightful quips on world issues including Britains special relationship with the United States and the #MeToo movement In My Minds Eye will charm old and new Jan Morris fans alike.
