9780141001647: A House Unlocked

A House Unlocked is Booker Prize winning author Penelope Lively's classic memoir. The only child of divorced parents, Penelope Lively was often sent to stay at her grandparents' country house Golsoncott. Years later, as the house was sold out of the family, she began to piece together the lives of those she knew fifty years before. In a needlework sampler, she sees her grandmother and the wartime children that she sheltered under her roof in 1940. Potted meat jars remind her of the ritual of doing the flowers for church. The smell of the harness room brings her Aunt Rachel - avant-garde artist, fervent horserider - vividly back to life. In A House Unlocked, Penelope Lively delves into the domestic past of her former home, and tells of her own youth and the contrasts between life today and the way they lived then. 'Wonderful. Lively is brilliant and original . . . Every page of this book captures your attention' Daily Mail 'Remarkable, richly enjoyable . . . a captivating memoir' Helen Dunmore, The Times 'Engaging, curious, compelling, remarkable . . . Any time spent with Penelope Lively is a joy' Observer Penelope Lively is the author of many prize-winning novels and short-story collections for both adults and children.
