A most interesting book about Claudia as she tells the world's history according to Claudia. Claudia is lying in a bed in a nursing home close to death. She starts with her childhood, proceeds to her war correspondence days in Egypt during WWII and finishes off at the present.
Claudia talks about her brother and worthy adversary, Gordon, her untrustworthy lover, Jasper, her staid and conventional daughter, Lisa and her great love, Tom. Claudia has little patience for people she deems unworthy.
This book is extremely well written and I found the passage about Egypt in WWII to be particularly interesting. Claudia reminds me of an old aunt who likes to keep everyone on their toes.

My mom, AceofHearts, passed away from breast cancer on September 17, 2013. Aside from being one of the best people I know, she was an avid reader and took immense pleasure in Bookcrossing, her book club, and reading many great books.
Before she passed, she showed me all of her owed books and the books she wanted to give away as RABCKs, making sure that I would send everything on should anything happen. This book was marked for Zosime as an owed book.
