About the Author
Diana Athill was born in 1917 and spent her childhood in Norfolk, which remains her family's home. After leaving Oxford, where she read English, she went to London and got a job with the BBC which lasted for the duration of the Second World War. In 1946, by chance, she drifted into publishing, which has remained her profession ever since. She has been a director of Andre Deutsch Limited since the firm was founded in 1952. Her own publications are An Unavoidable Delay (1960 - a collection of stories published only in the United States), Instead of a Letter (1963 - an autobiography) and Don't Look At Me Like That (1969 - a novel).
