This week I’m reading Alive, Alive Oh! by Diana Athill.
Here’s the blurb from the back cover:
What matters in the end? In the final years of life, which memories stand out? As she approaches her 100th year, Diana Athill recalls in sparkling detail the moments in her life which sustain her. With vivid memories of the past mingled with candid, yet wise and often very funny reflections on the experience of being very old, Alive, Alive Oh! reminds us of the joy and richness to be found at every stage of life.
Diana Athill died in January 2019, at age 101.
