Book review: ‘Thinking Again’ by Jan Morris

A second volume of gentle diary-entries-cum-essays.
Thinking Again

Thinking Again is the second collection of short, entertaining diary entries from veteran writer Jan Morris. I enjoyed it every bit as much as I did its predecessor, In My Mind’s Eye.

As with its predecessor, most of the diary entries take the form of short essays. They’re gentle and diverting, being mainly reminiscences, and reflections on being old and living in North Wales. I have to say, though, I found Morris’s occasionally professed admiration for Donald Trump rather disconcerting.

Being in her nineties, Morris says she believes this will be her last book. I hope she’s wrong.

Highly recommended.

“…wonderfully droll, witty and entertaining… At their best Carter’s moorland walks and his meandering intellectual talk are part of a single, deeply coherent enterprise: a restless inquiry into the meaning of place and the nature of self.”
