She is always eloquent, often very funny, a natural writer * Sunday Telegraph *
A narrative in which the passing literary stars take second place to an extraordinary guiding intelligence - sceptical, amused, humane * New Statesman *
Self-deprecating, clear-sighted and fun-loving, Athill comes through these pages as a deeply appealing personality. Her own writing style is classically elegant, making Stet a real gem * Mail on Sunday *
This is a memoir of a life in publishing, and is written with a lovely and elegant lucidity * Daily Telegraph *
To write well about the profession requires candour, wisdom, clarity, passion, a sense of proportion and above all a sense of humour...Fortunately Diana Athill has them in abundance * Independent on Sunday *
Athill has written a short book long on charm...She tells her own story lightly and delightfully * Daily Mail *
