Stepladder to Hindsight is about a fascinating man who has reached a turning point in his life and looks back. In this work, renowned academic and life-writer Richard Freadman turns the pen on himself, producing an immensely compelling narrative of his life.
Elegant and richly self-aware, Stepladder to Hindsight gives us unbridled access to a complex life and a unique mind. Within these pages you will find humour and tragedy, peppered with astute literary commentary and philosophical musings. This ‘almost memoir’ is fiercely intelligent and so addictively personal that it is hard to put down.
What the critics said: “…an eloquent book, a unique combination of compelling storytelling, searching reflection, with an extraordinary range of mood and style - an original take on the art of life writing.”
