Journal Entry 1 by teachie from High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire United Kingdom on Sunday, May 13, 2018
Born in 1908, Amory Clay is introduced to photography by her uncle, and, after leaving school, works with him taking society portraits. But she yearns for something more exciting – and soon finds it. Taking pictures of prostitutes in Weimar Berlin, she has to run from Nazi thugs. Covering a fascist march in the East End, she’s beaten up by Blackshirts. Following the Allies through France in 1944, she comes under gunfire for the first time – although not the last, because in 1966 she goes off to Vietnam.

Through all of this, Boyd is as good as ever as capturing time and place, and at blurring the line between fact and fiction – here with the aid of a selection of “Amory’s” photographs that are scattered throughout the book. (Apparently, Boyd found them at car boot sales and auctions.)
