Yesterday Morning : A Very English Childhood, Paperback / softback Book

Yesterday Morning : A Very English Childhood Paperback / softback


A remarkable, truthful and vivid recollection of childhood, from the author of Stet, After a Funeral, Don't Look at Me Like That and Instead of a Letter.

Here Athill goes back to the beginning in a sharp evocation of a childhood unfashionably filled with happiness - a Norfolk country house, servants, the pleasures of horses, the unfolding secrets of adults and sex.

This is England in the 1920s seen (with a clear and unsentimental eye) from the vantage point of England in 2001.

It was a privileged and loving life: but did it equip the author to be happy?
