Product Details


“Amiable and engaging. . . . As vivid and character-rich as her popular histories.” The Washington Post

“The history of a writer’s love affair with her vocation. . . . Elicit[s] warm fellow feeling even in readers themselves who are nothing like a dame.” The New York Times Book Review

“Reading My History, I felt I was sitting at Ms. Fraser’s dinner table in London, listening to the reminiscences and anecdotes of a grande dame.” Moira Hodgson, The Wall Street Journal
“A fascinating account. . . . A book that ends, as it began, in wonderland.” —The Guardian (London)

“Hugely enjoyable.” —The Times (London)

“Antonia Fraser, through both advantages of birth and strength of character, is one of those rare human beings who has managed to live a long, eventful life that has been both charmed and charming. . . . My History will certainly bring readers closer to Antonia Fraser. And the closer they get, the more most of them will like this willful, winning and very talented lady.” —The Washington Times

“Engaging and elegiac.” —Financial Times

“A witty, perambulating memoir of youth and early adulthood. . . . Nuanced and emotionally oblique in a most English fashion, [My History] offers a textured glimpse into a bygone era.” —Publishers Weekly

“Engaging. . . . This autobiographical journey is distinguished by Fraser’s contagious enthusiasm for all things historical, including her own remarkable past.” —Booklist
“Will amuse and delight memoir lovers interested in upper-class British life of the mid-twentieth century.” —Library Journal
