  • "Baroness James records and reflects--of her childhood in the 1920s and 1930s, of working as an administrator in the NHS, entering the Home Office, serving as a Governor of the BBC, and eventually entering the Lords; and along the way she deals with her burgeoning career as a novelist."
  • "PLAYAWAY. Part diary, part memoir, P.D. James considers the 12 months of her life between her 77th and 78th birthdays, 'a time to be in earnest', as Dr Johnson said at the comparable moment of his very different life two centuries ago. She recalls what it was like to be a schoolgirl in the 1920s and 1930s in Cambridge, then giving birth to her second daughter during the worst of the Doodlebug bombardment in London during the war, serving as a Governor of the BBC, entering the House of Lords and dealing with her burgeoning reputation as a novelist. This record of twelve months in a life of creativity and public service, told with honesty and perception, will appeal to those who themselves have lived through the turbulent years of the twentieth century."
