AMMONITES AND LEAPING FISH: A LIFE IN TIME

Synopsis

In this charming but powerful memoir, Penelope Lively reports from beyond the horizon of old age. She examines the tricks and truths of memory and looks back over a lifetime of reading and writing. And finally she looks at her identifying cargo of possessions - two ammonites, a cat, a pair of American ducks and a leaping fish sherd, amongst others.
