"A sharply observed (and sometimes very funny) portrait of the frivolous world of wealth and luxury inhabited by the Windsors." --Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times "Beguiling. . . . Blackwood is witty, understated and perceptive." --The Washington Post "The central character in The Last of the Duchess never appears at all but, like Godot in Beckett's play, becomes more powerful by her absence. . . . Brilliant--and brilliantly entertaining--journalism." --Chicago Tribune "A fierce, scintillatingly funny report on a dying social circle." --The Independent (London)
