Artemis Cooper is to write an authorised biography of Elizabeth Jane Howard, who sadly died on 2nd. January aged 90. While we wait for that, may I recommend Elizabeth Jane Howard's memoir Slipstream (and Artemis Cooper's life of Elizabeth David, Writing at the Kitchen Table).
While we're on the subject, which writers' auto/biographies would you rate highly?
I've spoken recently of Hermione Lee's Penelope Fitzgerald: A Life, and Alister McGrath's excellent C. S. Lewis: A Life; I've got Anne Chisholm's Rumer Godden: A Storyteller's Life waiting in the TBR pile, and I have my eye on Kevin Crossley-Holland's The Hidden Roads: A Memoir of Childhood.
Do any others spring to mind?
