First words
Arthur Ransome wrote the bulk of his autobiography between 1949 and 1961, from the age of sixty-five to seventy-seven.

Prologue, by Rupert Hart-Davis.
Some thirty years ago, in Moscow, I was asked by a Russian writer what was the first thing I could remember.

Chapter I, Early memories.
I used to laugh at young men who wrote their autobiographies at the age of twenty-one or twenty-five. I now think that they are wise to write them before they have many mistakes to regret.

Postscript.
The tide had indeed turned. Steadily increasing sales of the books removed all worries about money.
