My Animal Life

by Maggie Gee
£8.99   paperback  Telegram Books (2011)

My Animal Life by Maggie Gee Our lives are so short, a breath, half a breath,
And each of us has a journey to make...

Maggie Gee's journey started in a small family in post-war Britain, when love, ambition and good behaviour looked very different.
At seventeen, Maggie, who had 'never had a boyfriend, never had sex and never had a job' went, totally unprepared, to Oxford. From the 1960s onwards she was living the defining events of her generation: the coming of the Pill and sexual freedom, and tremors in the cosy British layer-cake of class and race.
In the 1980s, Maggie stumbles into the literary world, falls in love, gets married and has a daughter. Writing with remarkable honesty and grace, Maggie explores the questions that matter most: success and failure, sex, death and parenthood; our animal life.
