A poignant, shockingly candid account of the stages in a literary life, from promiscuity at Oxford to a stint at Penthouse to a complex marriage that endured. This is a classic of English memoir and the full story behind the author's article that inspired the award-winning motion picture that has been nominated in three categories for an Academy Award.
When Lynn Barber was sixteen, a stranger in a maroon sports car pulled up beside her as she was on her way home from school and offered her a ride. It was the beginning of a long journey from innocence to precocious experience--an affair with an older man that would change her life. Barber's seducer left her with a taste for luxury hotels and posh restaurants and trips abroad, expensive habits that she managed to support in later life as a successful London journalist whose barbed interviews both terrorized and fascinated her smart-set subjects.

The most riveting memoir you will read this year, comic and tragic by turns. A small masterpiece.--Literary Review
Candid, unsentimental, and extremely funny. I read it in one glorious go, laughing and crying throughout.--Zoe Heller, novelist and journalist
Effortlessly engaging prose. --Times (London)
An Education confirms Barber as the kind of lovely, thoughtful and outspoken character you'd love to sit next to at a dinner party.--Sunday Express
Barber's voice is of course hugely confident--sometimes grumpy, often a bit snooty, very often funny and always extremely frank. Take this to the beach and be grateful for feminism. --Scotsman
Lynn Barber is known for her acerbic features and interviews, and this memoir is no less candid, fun and down to earth....An Education reads like a gossip over coffee with an irreverent mother in law. --Sunday Times
