Summary

'I have never before in my life kept a diary of my thoughts, and here at the start of my ninth decade, having for the moment nothing much else to write, I am having a go at it. Good luck to me.'  

So begins this extraordinary audiobook, a collection of diary pieces that Jan Morris wrote for the Financial Times over the course of 2017.  

A former soldier and journalist, and one of the great chroniclers of the world for over half a century, she writes here in her characteristically intimate voice - funny, perceptive, wise, touching, wicked, scabrous, and above all, kind - about her thoughts on the world, and her own place in it as she turns 90. From cats to cars, travel to home, music to writing, it's a cornucopia of delights from a unique literary figure.

A wonderfully delightful book

This is a really excellent listen. i listened in bed whilst having coffee in the mornings i really did not want it to end. The narrator was brilliant so nice to hear things spoken in a good voice.
it is a book to listen to after you have heard a gripping story. its like a refreshing of the mind .
Highly recommend what a life she has lead i loved every minute of it
