Travels for the Mind or for the Body?

On Trying to Keep Still by Jenny Diski


I was saddened to hear that Jenny Diski was diagnosed with terminal cancer, and even more saddened when she passed away. Interestingly enough, the first thought that went through my head was "why haven't I read more of her works?" I knew that I loved her writing, and frankly, I felt ashamed that I'd only read two of her books. While Diski wrote many works of fiction, I've only read her non-fiction "travel" books. (I put the word 'travel' in quotation marks because these are more memoirs through the places she visits, than books about the travel itself.)













You can find the rest of my review of this on my new blog here!




"On Trying to Keep Still" by Jenny Diski is available from Amazon US, Amazon UK, Barnes & Noble, The Book Depository (free worldwide delivery), as well as new or used from Alibris or Better World Books.
