As one of the best biographers of her generation, Claire Tomalin has written about great authors—including Charles Dickens, Jane Austen, Thomas Hardy, and Mary Wollstonecraft—to huge success. Now she turns to look at her own life in an enthralling memoir, following from her wartime childhood in London, to her marriage to journalist Nicholas Tomalin (who was killed on assignment), through her own brilliant literary career. She speaks about her new book with Kai Bird, executive director of the Leon Levy Center for Biography.
