內容簡介

Beautifully repackaged as part of the Picador Modern Classics Series, this special edition is small enough to fit in your pocket and bold enough to stand out on your bookshelf.

Hilary Mantel, two-time winner of the Man Booker Prize, is one of the world’s most accomplished and acclaimed fiction writers. Her only work of nonfiction, Giving Up the Ghost, is a dazzling memoir of a career blighted by physical pain in which her singular imagination supplied compensation for the life her body was denied.

"The story of my own childhood is a complicated sentence that I am always trying to finish, to finish and put behind me."

In postwar rural England, Hilary Mantel grew up convinced that the most extraordinary feats were within her grasp. But at nineteen, she became ill. Through years of misdiagnosis, she suffered patronizing psychiatric treatment and destructive surgery that left her without hope of children. Beset by pain and sadnees, she decided to "write herself into being." This wry and visceral memoir will certainly bring new converts to Mantel’s dark genius.

"Dazzlingly written...A highly unorthodox account of what is essentially unsayable about the inward, uncharted life."--Joyce Carol Oates
