Best known for her definitive biographies of, among others, Mary Wollstonecraft, Katherine Mansfield and, most recently, Jane Austen, Tomalin has also worked as a publisher, journalist and critic. The reviews and broadcasts collected here are from a career spanning 30 years. They range in subject from women's history to modern fiction, and are divided into three sections, each introduced with an essay setting her career in context. This is a rich offering from a writer whose own life is passionately involved with books and their authors. (Kirkus UK)
"Several Strangers" collects together the best of Claire Tomalin's literary pieces over a period of thirty years and - through three long, splendidly written 'introductions' - tells of the author's own involvement in literary journalism during that time. The result is a fascinating account of how a woman was able to survive in the male world of books and newspapers. Along the way there are brilliant portraits of Martin Amis, Andrew Neill and Julian Barnes amongst others.
