Book review: ‘In My Mind’s Eye’ by Jan Morris

A thought diary.

In My Mind’s Eye

This gentle book by the veteran writer reminded me very much of Ronald Blythe’s excellent Wormingford series of books (minus all the religion).

It comprises 188 short diary entries, covering all manner of topics, ranging from the former British Empire to getting the car valeted, from model ships to observing passers-by from a local tea shop.

Jan Morris’s motto is Be Kind. Reading this book made me more inclined to try to be so.
