Written from the late years of an extraordinary life, Ann Moyal's biography is a spirited narrative of her career as an eminent historian of Australian science and technology, her three marriages, travelling the globe, the people she has encountered, and the joys and challenges of ageing.
Responding to a lack of biographies of older women, she continues where her earlier memoir Breakfast with Beaverbrook left off, revelling in the passions and people that continue to fill her life, through to her eighties.
As one of Australia's significant intellectuals, this is both an account of the life of the mind and an intimate telling of a rich and remarkable life. (publisher blurb)
