I see that Amazon has the oh-so-wise-and-witty Diana Athill's SOMEWHERE TOWARDS THE END: A Memoir (published in 2008 and winner of the 2009 National Book Critics Circle Award in Autobiography and a New York Times bestseller) on sale for Kindle. Called a "legendary British editor", Ms. Athill worked with some of the great authors of the 20th Century. And, while I enjoyed a couple of her other books, I truly loved this one and will now read it again. So, yes, I recommend it highly. Her 100th birthday is in December.
