In this very personal book, part diary, part memoir, P.D. James considers the 12 months of her life between her 77th and 78th birthdays, a time to be in earnest as Dr. Johnson had said of his life two centuries ago. Baroness James records and reflects, of her childhood in the 1920s and 1930s, of working as an administrator in the NHS, entering the Home Office, serving as a Governor of the BBC, and eventually entering the Lords. And along the way she deals with her burgeoning career as a novelist. Download and start listening now!
