WHEN Jan Morris died in 2020, she was considered by some to be one of Britain's best-loved writers.

The author of Venice, Pax Britannica, Conundrum, and more than 50 other books, her work was known for its observational genius, lyricism, and humour, and had earned her a passionate readership around the world.

Join Penarth's independent bookshop, Griffin Books, to welcome journalist and writer Paul Clements who wrote Jan Morris: Life from Both sides.

This is the first biography to cover a full account of Ms Morris' life and is based on:

  • Interviews;
  • Archival material;
  • Hitherto unpbulished documentaries.

This brand new biography portrays a person of extraordinary talent, curiosity, and joie de vivre.
