Chatto & Windus, London, 1998. First edition. Book condition: very good. Spine very slightly rolled and pp187 -189 mistrimmed in production resulting in some surplus paper and some creasing to lower corners of these pages, very slight loss to corner tip of p189. Dust jacket condition: fine and unclipped. Curiously, this volume has two jackets one inside the other (both fine) - might have been a Friday afternoon at the bindery. Hidden Lives, Margaret Forster's previous bestselling memoir, told the story of the women in her family. In the background was her father, the indomitable Arthur. Now she takes up his story in Precious Lives, telling it withe same honesty and narrative engagement. This is a very personal and moving book: a remarkable, candid and intimate memoir about living and dying, and especially about the small change and old currency of everyday life from which memories are made.
