About the Author

Selina Hastings is a writer and literary journalist. She worked for fourteen years on the Daily Telegraph and subsequently as literary editor of Harper's & Queen. She has also written the prize-winning Evelyn Waugh: A Biography and Nancy Mitford.


"I can think of few biographies that are as unputdownable as a novel, but Selina Hastings has produced one: fluidly written, witty, detached yet utterly gripping-deeply touching: a triumph of the biographer's art" * Spectator * "A funny and marvellously readable study of a woman who was incurably addicted to love" * Independent on Sunday * "Finely textured, exceptionally perceptive and wonderfully readable-the best possible tribute; an understanding, clear-eyed portrait" * Sunday Telegraph * "So intelligently written that you linger over the phrasing, her account blends wit, mischief, gossip, acuity and admiration... Shrewd, relaxed, understanding, stylish and not to be missed" * Sunday Times * "Careful and sympathetic - striking a delicate balance between factual detail and evocative description" * Scotsman *
