About This Item

Viking Press, 2005. Paperback. Very Good/very good. Unmarked. Unclipped dust jacket. Some tanning of the pages. 215p. Measures 6.25x9.25 inches. British novelist Lively, the author of Moon Tiger, offers a tale based on her life. She considers what might have happened had she made other choices or experienced different outcomes at pivotal moments, considering such fictional turns of events as her family's failure to escape from Egypt during World War II, an unplanned teen pregnancy, and a marriage to another person.

Synopsis

Hailed by critics as a benchmark in a career full of award-winning achievements, Making It Up is Penelope Lively's answer to the oft-asked question, "How much of what you write comes from your own life?" What if Lively hadn't escaped from Egypt, her birthplace, at the outbreak of World War II? What would her life have been like if she'd married someone else? From a hillside in Italy to an archaeological dig, the author explores the stories that could have been hers, fashioning a sublime dance between reality and imagination that confirms her reputation as a singular talent.
