It Goes with the Territory

(2013)
Memoir of a Poet
A non fiction book by

 
 
The first memoir by an influential poet, novelist, and critic, full of literary anecdotes

A prolific author of novels, poetry collections, plays, biographies, and translations, Elaine Feinstein shares the story of her journey from a Jewish childhood in Leicester into the undergraduate world of post-war Cambridge, the excitement of friendships in the literary world, and the tensions of a poet's writing life inside a long and sometimes painful marriage. This book, however, is not only the intimate memoir of one of Britain's finest poets and novelists: it is also the story of a rapidly changing country and of an entire generation of authors. Told with the precision of a biographer and the finesse of a poet, and peppered with witty literary anecdotes, this is an absorbing read from beginning to end.
