Antonia Fraser's memoir describes growing up in the 1930s and 1940s but its real concern is with her growing love of History. The fascination began as a child – and developed into an enduring passion; as she writes, 'for me, the study of History has always been an essential part of the enjoyment of life'.Antonia Fraser is the prize-winning author of many widely acclaimed historical works which have been international bestsellers. She was made DBE in 2011 for services to literature.This podcast was recorded live at our January 2015 'Writer of the month' event.
