Dancing Fish and Ammonites: A Memoir

Mind. There are many great reasons to read Penelope Lively’s memoir, Dancing Fish and Ammonites. Her prose soars. Reading the recollections of others can stimulate one’s own recollections. We’re all aging, and the observations of a fine writer can inform readers about aspects of that process. The workings of the mind are fascinating, and when presented by Lively seem to deepen. A few sentences on objects can trigger one’s own observations about prized possessions and their meaning. Any time spent with such lucid intelligence may lead to some of it rubbing on the reader. Pick your reason and then read this book before your life slips away. Rating: Four-star (I like it) Click here to purchase Dancing Fish from
