The witty and brilliant autobiography from legendary, beloved and groundbreaking journalist Katharine Whitehorn.

'A book to treasure for its wit, honesty, good sense and warm laughter' DAILY TELEGRAPH

Q: A mother's place?
A: In the wrong.

Much loved for her frankness and humour, Katharine Whitehorn was a legendary journalist who pioneered the first of the personal columns. She told us how it really was. She was funny - and smart. SELECTIVE MEMORY, her autobiography, is about childhood, motherhood, marriage and of course her pioneering work on Fleet Street.

Praise for Katharine Whitehorn:

'Everyone grabbed the Observer to read her column on a Sunday morning' JILLY COOPER

'Wise, witty, mischievous' JAY RAYNER

'A meteor: clever, funny, compassionate, insightful, beautiful' RACHEL COOKE
