Based on the diary she kept for years, a candid autobiography of mystery writer P.D. James retraces her life from her school days in 1930s Cambridge to her membership in the House of Lords and her success as a writer

Book News
This crafter of taut, resonant dissections of the dark side of the human heart here turns the examining lens on her own story. The fragmentaion noted in the title refers to the device James uses: snatches of memory, flashes of anecdote, glimpses into her own process and predilections are laid out in diary entries over the course of a year. The book includes b&w photos and the text of a paper James gave in 1998 on Jane Austen's Emma as a detective story. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
