A story of talent, good humour [humor] and determination. Known for the wit of her writing, Catherine Cookson was the UK's most widely read novelist during her lifetime. When her Estate discovered this never-before-published memoir in the attic of her home, it was an astonishing find. "Before I Go" is the definitive story of her life, in the author's own candid words. While Cookson had authored previous autobiographies, none have truly touched, upon the tragedy and personal anguish she experienced until now. For the first time, she reveals the worst years of her life--her constant battles with illness and a series of devastating miscarriages, the damaging jealousy of her friend and her struggle to be taken seriously as a writer. But what shines through most is her strength in the face of adversity, her deep love for her husband, Tom, the solace she found in her art and her unmistakable character. "Before I Go" is an inspiring story of resilience and a must for any Cookson fan.
