Biography
Memoir
Joan Bakewell has led a varied, sometimes breathless life: she has been a teacher, copywriter, studio manager, broadcaster, journalist, the government's Voice of Older People and chair of the theatre company Shared Experience. She has written four radio plays, two novels and an autobiography. Now in her 80s, she is still broadcasting. Though it may look as though she is now part of the establishment - a Dame, President of Birkbeck College, a Member of the House of Lords as Baroness Bakewell of Stockport - she's anything but and remains outspoken and courageous. In 'Stop the Clocks', she muses on all she has lived through, how the world has changed and considers the things and values she will be leaving behind.

This is a book that the author needed to write and her time at the writers country cottage was very well spent in doing so.A most interesting insight into her own family's life and values.Although 30 yrs her junior I found myself agreeing with many of her comments about the world we live in and her concerns for its future.
