Synopsis

Riffing on cats and Brexit, the Royals and the annoyances of aging, the nonagenarian Jan Morris delights with her wickedly hilarious first-ever diary collection. Celebrated as the 'greatest descriptive writer of her time' (Rebecca West), Jan Morris has been dazzling readers since she burst on the scene with her on-the-spot reportage of the first ascent of Everest in 1953. Now, the beloved ninety-two-year-old, author of classics such as Venice and Trieste, embarks on an entirely new literary enterprise-a collection of daily diaries, penned over the course of a single year. Ranging widely from the idyllic confines of her North Wales home, Morris offers diverse sallies on her preferred form of exercises (walking briskly), her frustration at not recognizing a certain melody humming in her head (Beethoven's Pathetique, incidentally), and her nostalgia for small-town America, as well as intimate glimpses into her home life. With insightful quips on world issues, including Britain's 'special relationship' with the United States and the #MeToo movement, In My Mind's Eye will charm old and new Jan Morris fans alike.
