What a Woman!,
This review is from: Somewhere Towards the End (Paperback)
I have 'stumbled' across Diana Athill in a Guardian interview the day before the Costa biography prize was announced. This interview made me root for Diana to win, even though I had previously not heart of her let alone read a line she'd written. When she won, I was delighted and THEN bought the book, such is the impression this astonishing woman leaves.
"Somewhere towards the end" is written with a warmth and an obvious intelligence that is a joy to read. Diana's thoughts on Sex, Art and life matters are interesting not only with regards to her age. She radiates a confidence that is never irritating; never arrogant. This book is a fulfilling read and I would unconditionally recommend its purchase.
