"This time I must not blot a line. No revision, no second thoughts. Down it shall go. Already I am terrified' Jean Rhys, the celebrated author of Wide Sargasso Sea, laid much of her troubled life bare in her novels, yet remained haunted by memories of her past. In this extraordinary autobiography, written in old age and despite the burden of late fame, she recaptures it: from her early days on the lush, wild island of Dominica to her bleak years in England, moving through different bedsits, jobs and men, and on to life in Paris, where she found a certain freedom and began to write in earnest. Candid and atmospheric, Smile Please shows a woman living adrift from the world, and a writer who was sensitive, perceptive and ahead of her time. With a Foreword by Diana Athill"
