Diana Athill talks to John Walsh

Somewhere Towards the End

Hay Festival 2008, 
The great nonagenarian publisher and memoirist Diana Athill talks to John Walsh about how the pleasure of sex ebbs, how the joy of gardening grows, how much there is to remember, to forget, to regret, to forgive—and how one faces the inevitable fact of death.
