The memory that we live with is the moth-eaten version of our own past that each of us carries around, depends on. It is our ID; this is how we know who we are and where we have been. Memory and history have been Penelope Lively s terrain in fiction over a career that has spanned five decades. But she has only rarely given listeners a glimpse into her influences and formative years. "Dancing Fish and Ammonites" traces the arc of Lively s life, stretching from her 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 archeology, the fragments of the ancients that have accompanied her journey including a sherd of Egyptian ceramic depicting dancing fish and ammonites found years ago on a Dorset beach. She also writes insightfully about aging and what life looks like from where she now stands."
