Following a series of devastating rejections, Michèle Roberts began keeping an account of her life in the hope it might help mend her shattered sense of self. In this intimate and wryly honest journal she reflects on cities and countryside, loss and love, food, friendships, sisterhood, pleasure and memories, her abiding relationship with France and with literature. Over the course of a year a new pattern of being develops, until, finally, she finds a better relationship between inner and outer worlds. 'A wonderful writer: one in possession of immense feeling.' -Rachel Cooke, The Observer 'Roberts writes with wit and honesty.' -The Independent 'A magnificent writer.' -Helen Dunmore, The Guardian 'Michele Roberts is a writer who has always excelled at embodying the joy of female intellectual and earthly appetites.' -Deborah Levy 'Funny, wise and all-embracing' -Carmen Callil
