From the cover: “In Let Me Make Myself Plain Catherine Cookson may be said to break new ground as an author. The title echoes her first surprised reaction to a television producer's suggestion that she undertake a series of late-night Epilogues. She accepted the challenge with results so successful that many who heard the talks wrote asking for their publication. Here they form the core of a remarkable collection of essays and the poems she modestly describes as ‘prose on short lines’, into which she has distilled over the years a deeply personal and hard-won philosophy. Among the themes she explores are — love and marriage, the experience of pain in body and mind alike — above all, an unceasing quest for the inner strength needed to fight the battle of life.”
