Alive, Alive Oh!
Available in Stock
After four decades as an editor with Andre Deutsch, Diana Athill (b.1917) began a second career as a writer with her memoir, Stet, in 2001. Alive, Alive Oh! is her fifth book, reflecting on being very old and looking back, not on literary work, but on memorable experiences of places and things including her grandparents' garden in Norfolk, a miscarriage in her forties, and a £21 holiday at the new Club Mediterranee, Corfu, in the 1950s.
