BE­FORE I GO, CATHER­INE COOKSON

No. 1 Magazine - - INTERIORS & LIFESTYLE -

Known for the wit of her writ­ing, Cather­ine Cookson was the UK’S most widely read nov­el­ist dur­ing her life­time. When her Es­tate dis­cov­ered this never-be­fore­pub­lished mem­oir in the at­tic of her home, it was an as­ton­ish­ing find. Be­fore I Go is the de­fin­i­tive story of her life, in the au­thor’s own can­did words. For the first time, she re­veals the worst years of her life – her con­stant bat­tles with ill­ness and a se­ries of dev­as­tat­ing mis­car­riages, the dam­ag­ing jeal­ousy of her friend and her strug­gle to be taken se­ri­ously as a writer. (£6.99, Ama­zon)
