Attention all fans of E. Nesbit – I’ve just finished my latest LibriVox solo, and it’s her mini autobiography My School Days. It’s very short, just a bit over two hours, and as she writes towards the end, covers only a few incidents from an astonishingly clearly-remembered childhood. Places that she lived, games that she played – and the things that scared her enough to give her nightmares for years — and to influence her wonderful horror stories for adults. She wasn’t always a very good child, and her honesty about that really does make for interesting stories!
I wish she’d written more! What she did write is available as a free audiobook downloadable here: http://librivox.org/my-school-days-by-e-nesbit/
