Book Description and Condition

Book description and condition

Here interwoven with reflections of her writing career and the craft of crime novels, are vivid accounts of episodes in her own past - of school days in 1920s and 1930s Cambridge ... of the war and the tragedy of her husband's madness... of her determined struggle to support a family alone. P.D. James tells about the birth of her second daughter in the midst of a German buzz-bomb attack; about becoming a civil servant, about her years of public service

on such bodies as the Arts Council and the BBC's Board of Governors, culminating in entry to the House of Lords. Along the way she offers views on everything from author tours to the problems of television adaptations, from book reviewing to her obsession with Jane Austen. Contents, INSCRIBED ('To Kathleen') and SIGNED by P.D. JAMES on Title page. (The owner has then written the following under P.D. JAMES signature (5/5/00, Mystery Books, Woe. She told me she's bringing out another Adam Dalgleish Mystery. Horray!!!'). Note: This was probably 'Death in Holy Waters' published in 2001; no other inscriptions; dust jacket, no tears or chips. NEAR FINE.
