What a delight! I came to Web of Stories to listen to the stories of famous scientists, and was well-rewarded with hours of engrossing talk. Only after I'd been through the lives of a dozen scientists did I decide to try some other people and lucked into Diana Athill first go. Clever, warm, and highly articulate, she kept me up half the night; never bored, though I had not heard of many of the people she speaks of, and had barely heard of her. Now I'll head to my library site to find her memoir, which is bound to be worth reading.
