In her 'diary of my thoughts', renowned author and traveller Jan Morris covers much ground - this time it's life by the sea, catchphrases and Ibsen the cat.

In Jan Morris's newly published 'diary of my thoughts' the renowned author and traveller covers much ground:

'I have lived almost all my life by the sea.. most of the books I have written have been about sea cities.. I can hardly imagine life far from a shoreline, without a horizon'. She also ruminates about the origins of catchphrases, do they stand the test of time? And a late beloved cat called Ibsen.
