Threads of Life

A History of the World Through the Eye of a Needle
Clare Hunter

Description

An eloquent blend of history and memoir, Threads of Life is an evocative and moving book about the need we all have to tell our story.

Clare Hunter chronicles the stories of the men and women, over centuries and across continents, who have used the language of sewing to make their voices heard, even in the most desperate of circumstances.: from political propaganda in medieval France to secret treason in Tudor England, from the mothers of the desaparecidos in Argentina to First World War soldiers with PTSD, from a POW camp in Singapore to a family attic in Scotland.
