Publisher's Summary

Early one autumn afternoon in pursuit of an elusive book on her shelves, Susan Hill encountered dozens of others that she had never read, or forgotten she owned, or wanted to read for a second time. The discovery inspired her to embark on a year-long voyage through her books, forsaking new purchases in order to get to know her own collection again. A book which is left on a shelf for a decade is a dead thing, but it is also a chrysalis, packed with the potential to burst into new life.

Wandering through her house that day, Hill's eyes were opened to how much of that life was stored in her home, neglected for years. Howard's End Is on the Landing charts the journey of one of the nation's most accomplished authors as she revisits the conversations, libraries and bookshelves of the past that have informed a lifetime of reading and writing.

An author’s perspective on reading

This book has encouraged me to actually explore and read those books that are unread on my shelves, real and audible. It’s a delightful listen from an author who I love and respect. She obviously has a pretty extensive library herself which she draws upon in this wonderful read. A book about a love of reading. What’s not to love?
