Descrizione articolo

Riassunto:

"I am a wanderer: one with a hoarder's love of houses and things...I am tracing here a memory map of all the places that have stayed with me and, since this is also a map of all the voyages of discovery, this is also the story of the getting to those places." In "Memory Map", probably her most personal book, Lisa St Aubin de Teran charts a life spent in all corners of the world, from Wimbledon to the Venezuelan Andes, from the Caribbean to Ghana, and confesses to wanderlust and fate as being her chief guides. An itinerant lifestyle creates an unpredictable personal life, though, and Lisa writes movingly about being the support for three children by three different husbands and also, of the pain of failing to be strong.

From the Publisher:

“I am a wanderer: one with a hoarder’s love of houses and things... I am tracing here a memory map of all the places that have stayed with me... ” In her most personal book since The Hacienda, Lisa St. Aubin de Teràn charts a life spent in all corners of the world—from Wimbledon to the Venezuelan Andes, from the Caribbean to Ghana—with wanderlust and fate as her guides. Written with vividness and clarity, Memory Maps is an ongoing memoir of a life lived with courage and imagination. Lisa St. Aubin de Teràn’s first novel, Keepers of the House, won the Somerset Maugham Award and was followed by The Slow Train to Milan, which won the John Llewelyn Rhys Prize. She has written six other novels, poetry, short stories, and three volumes of memoirs, which includes the best–seller The Hacienda. She currently lives in Amsterdam.
