Read this book twice now and each time, 10 years apart, it has been like sitting with an older woman more experienced with all that I am living, and a real pleasure for this companionship.

i read this 20 years ago and still remember it with delight. CH's background as a scholarly writer and literary mystery authour is well known; this memoir completes the picture.

My favourite chapter is about the house of her own.

Her views seem rather old-fashioned in some ways so I was surprised to find that she labels herself a feminist. If found the writing stilted and self-indulgent. Many quotes of other writers make it difficult to believe she has many ideas of her own. It was a disappointment - perhaps because just finishing Steinhem's "Revolution from Within", which seems so much more authentic.
