Ammonites and Leaping Fish: A Life in Time

Penelope Lively / Anna Bentinck
'This is not quite a memoir. Rather it is the view from old age. And a view of old age itself this place at which we arrive with a certain surprise - ambushed or so it can seem. One of the few advantages of age is that you can report on it with a certain authority; you are a native now and know what goes on here.' Taking in old age the context of ones life and times memory reading and writing and the identifying cargo of possessions - two ammonites a cat a pair of American ducks and a leaping fish sherd amongst others - this is an elegant moving and deeply enjoyable memoir by one of our most loved writers.
