'A vital account of being a woman in the 20th century ... chronicles the growth of a woman from a privileged childhood of horses and country estates to a middle-class existence in Andre Deutsch's publishing house and love affairs, to a late contemplation on old age.

Diana Athill, born in 1917, made her reputation as a writer with the candour of her memoirs; through her commitment, in her words, 'to understand, to be aware, to touch the truth'. In a celebration of her life and writing, Life Class brings together four of her best-loved memoirs in one volume, spanning her very English childhood, her life and loves during the Second World War, her publishing career at André Deutsch, and her reflections on old age. Introduced by Ian Jack, Diana Athill's selected memoirs are a remarkable testament to an unusual and fully lived life.
