Description

‘One of the most inventive, original and disturbing writers of her generation’ Daily Telegraph In August 2014, Jenny Diski was diagnosed with inoperable lung cancer and given ‘two or three years’ to live. Being a writer, she decided to write about her experience – and to tell a story she had not yet told: that of being taken in, aged fifteen, by the author Doris Lessing, and the subsequent fifty years of their complex relationship. Splicing childhood memories with present-day realities, Diski paints an unflinching portrait of two extraordinary writers – Lessing and herself. Jenny Diski died a week after the publication of In Gratitude. A cerebral, witty, dazzlingly candid memoir, it is her final masterpiece.
