Description
Information
In this candid and revealing memoir, Elizabeth Jane Howard looks back over the course of her eventful life.

She has been married three times - firstly to Peter Scott, the naturalist and son of Captain Scott, and most famously and tempestuously to Kingsley Amis. It was Amis' son by another marriage, Martin, to whom she introduced the works of Jane Austen and ensured that he received the education that would be the grounding of his own literary career. Her closest friends have included some of the greatest writers and thinkers of the day - Laurie Lee, Arthur Koestler and Cecil Day-Lewis, among others.

'Slipstream' is a superlative work of autobiography. Honest and unflinching, it brilliantly illuminates the literary world of the latter half of the 20th century, as well as giving a highly personal insight into the life of one of the most beloved British writers.
