Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"A memoir of Forster's grandmother and mother which reflects on the changes in women's lives - about sex, family, work - across three generations. It is a moving, evocative account, passionate in its progress, punchy as a detective novel in its story of Forster's search for her grandmother's illegitimate daughter. It also shows how biography can challenge our basic assumptions about which lives have been significant and why" Jackie Wullschlager, "Financial Times". 8pp b/w photos.

Synopsis:

This is Margaret Forster's autobiography, following the lives of her grandmother, her mother and herself. Covering a period of 100 years of British history, her story starts in working class origins in Carlisle and mirrors the fortunes of three generations of British womanhood.
