5.0 out of 5 stars Take a look - don't miss this book 20 Jun. 2016

Follow up to "Conundrum" She is one of the very best English writers writing about travel and an overlooked gender pioneer.
5.0 out of 5 stars Second volume of her autobiography 25 Mar. 2014
By Dominic P. - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Conundrum was the first volume. It spoke of the process of transitioning, and how such a decision is made. Read it and you'll want to know how the story turned out. Which is where this book comes in. Written decades later in life, it tells you of the many paths begun in Conundrum. And who doesn't want to know how the story ends?

4.0 out of 5 stars What an Enviable Life! 14 Jan. 1998
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Jan Morris leads the kind of life anyone could envy: she does what she loves for a living and is successful at it, lives in the house she always wanted (a cottage in Wales) and is close to her friends and family. This series of essays meanders amiably over a number of topics: cats, her house, various cities, and aspects of her life. Some are more successful than others, but this book is a great companion, and so would Morris be, one feels.
