A LIFE OF HER OWN – Claire Tomalin

with Claire Armitstead

Sunday 20 May 3:00PM
AT Charleston
Tickets: £20


One of the greatest and most insightful biographers of our age, Claire Tomalin turned the spotlight on herself in a moving and measured memoir published last year. Her adherence to the truth encompasses a difficult childhood, love affairs, infidelity, haunting tragedy, pressures of combining motherhood with a career, anger at the plight of families coping with children with disabilities, as well as her experiences at the centre of literary London. She discusses what it felt like to focus on herself rather than her usual subjects, which include Pepys, Hardy and Dickens, with Claire Armitstead, Guardian Associate Editor, Culture.
