A Life of My Own – Claire Tomalin
Sat, 26 October 6:00pm
As one of the greatest biographers of our age, Claire Tomalin’s books about writers including Jane Austen and Thomas Hardy have received huge acclaim. Now, she looks at her own life. This enthralling, moving, beautifully written memoir follows her through triumph and tragedy from her difficult wartime childhood, early widowhood leaving her to bring up four children, a frank look at the pressures on women in the 50s and 60s, to forging her own brilliant career.
