JACOB'S ROOM IS FULL OF BOOKS
At last, a successor to Susan's best-selling HOWARDS END IS ON THE LANDING launched in October 2017.
JACOB'S ROOM IS FULL OF BOOKS is a monthly diary of books Susan has read and re-read in the course of another year, together with anecdotes about her long writing life, and interspersed with notes about the countryside in which she lives, its wildlife and landscape.
From Reviews of HOWARDS END IS ON THE LANDING
A totally beguiling, utterly persuasive, argument for reimmersing yourself in literature's past... it reminds you of the overlooked treasures we miss in the chase for novelty. Hill's work is part memoir, part outpouring of affection for these she has loved and, en route, she provides us with a reading list the equal of any degree course (Michael Gove The Times 2009-10-12)
An impressionistic autobiography... offers fascinating sketches of literary and artistic figures she has known... an eloquent advocate [for] the virtues of wide-ranging, deeply felt and considered reading... to be cherished (Michael Arditti Daily Telegraph 2009-10-10)
Evoked with precision and grace... She is nicely opinionated throughout... She is whimsical and intimate, scattering rhetorical questions and colloquial half-sentences... beguiling (Victoria Glendinning Spectator 2009-10-03)
