Description

"Several Strangers" collects together the best of Claire Tomalin's literary pieces over a period of thirty years and - through three long, splendidly written 'introductions' - tells of the author's own involvement in literary journalism during that time. The result is a fascinating account of how a woman was able to survive in the male world of books and newspapers. Along the way there are brilliant portraits of Martin Amis, Andrew Neill and Julian Barnes amongst others.show more
