P. D. James - LIFE STORIES
 
 
8/3/1920     P. D. James in Earnest
On this day in 1920 P.D. James was born. Her 1999 "fragment of autobiography" is entitled Time to Be in Earnest, from Samuel Johnson's statement that "At seventy-seven it is time to be in earnest." The memoir is a one-year diary beginning with her seventy-seventh birthday and ending with the assurance that "I shall continue to write detective stories as long as I can write well...." True to her word, her next novel, at age eighty-one, had reviewers declaring that she had "transcended the crime genre."
