Novels against the background of horseracing This revised edition tells how he became one of Brita. I was so excited when I realized that Dick Francis had an autobiography The book was not exactly what I expected but when I realized it was published in 1957 it made sense He talks about his childhood and his lifelong association with horses and then his transition into being a Steeplechase jockey It amused me that he would describe the horses and the races and the racetracks so thoroughly I skipped some of that But the rest of it was very interesting to me In an afterward he mentions having to retire because he was getting older and not healing as well from his racing falls and in only a paragraph says that he started writing for a newspaper and that eventually he tried to write a book When this afterward was published he had only written a couple of books It made me wonder how he would have written his autobiography towards the end of his life when he was such a best selling author
