Antonia White: v.2: Diaries, 1958-79 by Antonia White
Antonia White is best known for her autobiographical novel "Frost in May", a haunting and vivid account of her years at a convent school. In this second volume of her diaries she records her efforts at dealing with writer's block and her translations of classic books from the French. This period also saw the successful publication of "The Hound and the Falcon" and her letters to Peter Thorp about her return to the Catholic faith. Her profound and tender love for the daughters she resented in their childhood is a preoccupation of her latter years.
