For the past four years Jane Miller, author of Crazy Age: Thoughts on Being Old, has been writing a column for an American magazine called In These Times. Her beautifully observed pieces about life, politics and Britain open a window to her American readers of a world very different from their own.Jane lives in London, and has never met anyone connected to the magazine, all the time she has been contributing pieces, she and her editor at In These Times have kept up a lively email correspondence, and – having explored the Chicago street in which they work on Google Street View – she imagines her editor and his young assistants bicycling efficiently along the wide road, braced for a day’s fact-checking, assembling the magazine and then ‘putting it to bed’.In My Own Time is a celebration of the new connections possible in the modern world, and a collection of small windows on these last four years, at home and abroad. Through her emails across the Atlantic – warm and thoughtful, witty and sharp – Miller gives us an 84 Charing Cross Road for the twenty-first century.
