Claire Tomalin is best known for her highly acclaimed literary biographies - most recently of Jane Austen. But she has also spent many years as successful critic, journalist and pioneering literary editor of the 'New Statesman' and 'Sunday Times'.
This collection of the best of her reviews and essays also gives us fascinating glimpses of the literary scene - including candid portraits of her colleagues Andrew Neill, Martin Amis, Clive James and Paul Theroux. It is a vivid account of a woman succeeding in the male world of books and newspapers, and of continuing passion for writing and writers.
