Reading Group reivew. This turned out to be a popular choice. Surprisingly, quite a number of our group were unfamiliar with the author, and interested to discover her involvement with the freedom movement, as well as her theatrical connections. We liked the style of the book - once adapted to the language - and appreciated its simplicity. The discussion ranged widely and was centred on several key situations in th author's early life, as detailed in the book. Recommend this and subsequent volumes of her autobiography.
