Non-fiction Book of the Month for April

In Gratitude
Jenny Diski

Diagnosed with inoperable lung cancer, Diski looked back on her life and wrote about it.  More specifically, she wrote about her lesser know experience of being taken in by Doris Lessing, aged fifteen, and their subsequent long and complex friendship.  She died a week after publication so how lucky we are to have this luminous, fascinating and beautifully written snapshot of her life.
