In Jacob’s Room Is Full of Books, Susan Hill charts a year of her life through the books she has read, reread or returned to the shelf.

She considers everything from Edith Wharton’s novels through Alan Bennett’s diaries, Virginia Woolf to the writings of twelfth-century monk Aelred of Rievaulx, and much more besides. From beneath a shady tree in a hot French summer, or the warmth of a kitchen during an English winter, Hill reflects on what her reading throws up, from writing and writers to politics and religion, as well as the joy of dandies or the pleasure of watching a line of geese cross a meadow.
