'Something of Myself' Rudyard Kipling
is a memoir not only for Kipling admirers,
but for anyone who cares about the arts and craft of writing.
'Something of myself 'was composed in the year before he died
and published posthumously. its spare, polishes phrases and masterly anecdotes offer a unique insight into the mind of this divided man who upheld the Victorian imperialist values of
duty, patriotism and obedience, and yet sympathized with outlaws and children.
Kipling describes with unforgettable vividness his bitter childhood years
in the 'House of Desolation'
his apprenticeship to the craft of writing,
through the hard grind of journalism in British India,
his beloved parents and his pride in his own work.
