A handsome, pocket-sized clothbound reissue of Jan Morris’s extraordinarily honest and moving first memoir, originally published in 1974, about her decade-long transition from man to woman. “… I was not to myself what I was to others…”.
Eric Newby’s magnificent memoir of his WW2 experiences in Italy. Probably his best loved book, beautifully reissued as a clothbound hardback limited edition by Slightly Foxed. Who has ever forgotten the moment when an old man demolishes a boulder they have been struggling with for hours, with one blow of a hammer? Or Wanda?
The author of this extraordinary memoir has been sentenced to life in prison for the Kafkaesque crime of sending ‘subliminal messages’ in support of the failed coup in Turkey in 2016. This slim volume whose pages were smuggled out of the prison cell, is a moving testament to the power of literature and inner resources of the human spirit.
