Penelope Lively has always been a keen gardener The house is a huge Victorian monstrosity, with rooms all full of old furniture.
The two central activities in my life - alongside writing - have been reading and gardening. Penelope Lively has always been a keen gardener. This book is partly a memoir of her own life in gardens: the large garden at home in Cairo where she spent most of her childhood, her grandmother's garden in a sloping Somerset field, then two successive Oxfordshire gardens of her own, and the smaller urban garden in the North London home she lives in today. The house is a huge Victorian monstrosity, with rooms all full of old furniture, old papers, old clothes, memorabilia - it is like a living museum.

Home Penelope Lively The House in Norham Gardens. The elephants, by comparison, were endearing. They were inside, well away from the cold in a building that displayed them like actors in a lavish production. They swayed and shuffled against backgrounds as cunningly lit and structured as a stage set. Even so, it was possible to establish some kind of relationship with them: their trunks groped towards the audience as though seeking not food but reassurance of some kind.
