About this item
After Terry Waite's first year of solitary confinement in Beirut he was given books to read. Now he has gathered together selections, some evoking personal memories. This gives a fascinating insight into a solitary life.
For the first year of his solitary confinement in Beirut, Terry Waite was given nothing to read. During those days, not only did he write his autobiography in his head, but he also attempted to remember all the books, poems and prayers he had read during his life. Eventually his guards mellowed and he was given books. He received a wide variety ranging from Herodotus to the novels of Dorothy L. Sayers.;Here Terry Waite has gathered together selections from the books he remembered, the books he received and some of the books he wished he had received. Some of the selections evoke personal memories and Terry Waite relates these stories as he takes the reader down the corridors of memory into the world of books.
