Following the remarkable success ofLet Me Make Myself Plain,Catherine Cookson has compiled a further selection of thoughts, recollections, and observations on life--and death--together with another selection of the poems she prefers to call 'prose on short lines'. InPlainer Still, she reveals the source of the great inner strength she needs to carry on the battle of life, and which has, for the past fifty years, enabled her to write many novels, each of them inspired by the harsh and uncompromising nature of her early experiences. As John Braine wrote when reviewingCatherine Cookson Country,'One way or another, she is an inspiration, a noble spirit'. InPlainer Still,a new personal anthology illustrated by many photographs, readers will certainly find themselves inspired by the indomitable spirit of this remarkable lady. From the Paperback edition.
