Delightful ... [Hill] potently evokes the joy of discovering a new author or re-evaluating a favourite ... The authors, painters and musicians she knows or knew are vividly sketched ... a richly idiosyncratic memoir of a bibliophile. Best of all, it ignites a passion for books one hasn't read, or even though of. -- Nick Curtis * Mail on Sunday *
This thought-provoking book gives both inspiration on new titles to explore and a soothing sense that reading is indeed a vital and central part of living. * Press Association *
Hill is wise, affectionate, insightful. Here is a distillation of a lifetime of reading, writing, editing, publishing, buying, hoarding, lending, borrowing and dog-earing books. * Times *
The bookworm in your life will be champing at the bit to read [Hill's] recommendations * Saga *
Praise for Howards End is on the Landing: 'Totally beguiling, utterly persuasive' * The Times *
A passionate reminder of the importance of reading and a revealing glimpse of a writer's life * Observer *
Fascinating sketches of literary and artistic figures ... an eloquent advocate [for] the virtues of wide-ranging, deeply felt and considered reading * Daily Telegraph *
Delightful... an idiosyncratic commingling of fiction, non-fiction and poetry...Hill has a voracious and varied appetite and her taste, with a few exceptions, is impeccable * New Statesman *
Will stir up your love for old classics and send you scurrying off in search of exciting new reads. -- James Marriott * Times Books of the Year *
An amusing insight into how reading shapes our lives. For those with new year's resolutions to read more books, this journal is a good place to start. -- Saskia Murphy * Big Issue *
