MEMOIR & BIOGRAPHY 

CHRISTMAS AT FOYLES

There’s a very particular pleasure in taking a deep dive into the lives of those we admire and who inspire us. This year, we’re spoilt for choice. Top of our Christmas list is Michelle Obama’s intimate memoir, Becoming, a personal tale from one of the world’s most influential women. Sue Nelson’s wonderful book, Wally Funk’s Race for Space, tells the extraordinary story of one woman’s lifelong quest to reach the stars; Welcome Home is a collection of autobiographical writings by Lucia Berlin, the great short story writer, documenting her itinerant life. We’ve also a selection of books of letters and on letter-writing, including the fascinating Written in History by Simon Sebag Montefiore for you to browse below.
