Bookworm: A Memoir of Childhood Reading

by Lucy Mangan - £8.99  Vintage Publishing (Vintage) (2019)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781784709228 | ISBN 10: 1784709220

When Lucy Mangan was little, stories were everything. They opened up different worlds and cast new light on this one.
 
She was whisked away to Narnia – and Kirrin Island – and Wonderland. She ventured down rabbit holes and womble burrows into midnight gardens and chocolate factories. No wonder she only left the house for her weekly trip to the library.
 
In Bookworm, Lucy brings the favourite characters of our collective childhoods back to life and disinters a few forgotten treasures poignantly, wittily using them to tell her own story, that of a born, and unrepentant, bookworm.
