BAKEWELL, JOAN - The Centre of the Bed

London, Hodder and Stoughton. 2003, First Edition. (ISBN: 0340823100). Hard Cover, 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. A Fine unmarked copy with Fine dustjacket which is not price clipped. First edition, first impression. xiv + 322 pages. 47 illustrations. In this searching and intimate autobiography, Joan Bakewell retraces the paths she has taken and reveals what lay behind the public image and the choices she made. Recreating her working-class roots, she vividly depicts her childhood in Stockport and the impact of the war, and relives her escape from the tensions at home to Cambridge University, where she was part of the stellar generation that included Peter Hall, Frederic Raphael and Claire Tomalin. She describes what it was like to make her BBC television debut during the Cuban missile crisis; to be the only woman on 'Late Night Line Up', with its eclectic roster of guests; and to be dubbed 'the thinking man's crumpet'. Here, too, is how it felt to see her affair with Harold Pinter transmuted into his play 'Betrayal'. B2D. Fine/Fine.
