Dancing fish and ammonites

Auteur(s)Lively, Penelope (1933-...) (Auteur)

Titre(s)Dancing fish and ammonites [texte imprimé] : a memoir / Penelope Lively.

Editeur(s)New York : Penguin, 2015.

RésuméMemory and history have been Penelope Lively’s terrain in fiction throughout a career that has spanned five decades. In this “funny, smart, and poignant” (Los Angeles Times) memoir, she offers a glimpse into her influences and formative years, as well as a view of what life looks like from the vantage point of eighty years. Lively traces the arc of her own life, from early childhood in Cairo to boarding school in England to the sweeping social changes of Britain’s twentieth century. She reflects on her early love of archaeology, and on the fragments of the ancients that have accompanied her journey. She also takes an intimate look back at a life devoted to books and writes insightfully about aging.
