On Trying to Keep Still
Jenny Diski's attempt to keep still and mentally idle resulted in a year in which she travelled to New Zealand, spent two months almost alone in a cottage in the country and visited the S mi people of Lapland.
"This hazy grip on who she is, on where she ends and where the world begins - combined with her exceptional skill at moving words around on the page until they spark - allows her access to the furthest reaches of human consciousness in this remarkable, original, often funny, truly moving journey."
