Description

A joy to read from start to finish - "Sunday Independent"
Athill's astringent prose has the remarkable quality of making one look forward to old age - "Evening Standard"
"Yesterday Morning" is a captivating book. It is as if she had set out with a butterfly net to catch everything about her early life in an upper-middle-class English family before it - or she - vanished: the beloved grand house in Norfolk, the servants, her unhappily married parents. - "Guardian"
Athill's honesty in describing her feelings as a young girl and old woman makes her memoir universal. - "The Independent"
Athill's writing is like a really good apple: crisp, juicy, at once sweet and tart. She describes youthful games and discoveries in a voice that manages to combine delighted immediacy and ironic distance....The book feels at times like a grab bag, a collection of all the odds and ends Athill traces to her early years - "The New York Times Book Review"
A compulsively readable memoir of a golden age - "The Times"
Athill has added importantly to those works of literature which illuminate the vagaries of human emotion. - "Daily Telegraph"
