BESCHRIJVING

‘Nothing about Jenny Diski is conventional. Diski does not do linear, or normal, or boring … highly intelligent, furiously funny’ Sunday Times’She expanded notions about what nonfiction, as an art form, could do and could be’ New YorkerJenny Diski was a fearless writer, for whom no subject was too difficult, even her own cancer diagnosis.

Her columns in the London Review of Books – selected here by her editor and friend Mary-Kay Wilmers, on subjects as various as death, motherhood, sexual politics and the joys of solitude – have been described as ‘virtuoso performances’, and ‘small masterpieces’. From Highgate Cemetery to the interior of a psychiatric hospital, from Tottenham Court Road to the icebergs of Antarctica, Why Didn’t You Just Do What You Were Told? is a collective interrogation of the universal experience from a very particular psyche: original, opinionated – and mordantly funny.
