'One of the most inventive, original and disturbing writers of her generation' Daily TelegraphIn August 2014, Jenny Diski was diagnosed with inoperable lung cancer and given `two or three years' to live.
Being a writer, she decided to write about her experience - and to tell a story she had not yet told: that of being taken in, aged fifteen, by the author Doris Lessing, and the subsequent fifty years of their complex relationship.
Splicing childhood memories with present-day realities, Diski paints an unflinching portrait of two extraordinary writers - Lessing and herself. Jenny Diski died a week after the publication of In Gratitude.
A cerebral, witty, dazzlingly candid memoir, it is her final masterpiece.
