"Something of Myself", Kipling's charming autobiographical sketch, was the last work he wrote. In it, he sheds light on both his life and his work, opening with an account of his miserable early childhood; his time at school; and his beginnings as a journalist in India, where he first started to write. He describes how he felt on being published ('Lord ha' mercy, this is none of I'), the writers he met and the people he worked with. Most interestingly of all, Kipling recalls the books and incidents that inspired and shaped his many writings.
