Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
A memoir that is irresistible. A fascinating view of a strange childhood, and of the two very different grandmothers who brought Diana Holman-Hunt up. The portrait of her paternal grandmother, widow of the Pre-Raphaelite painter is heart-rending, yet also wonderfully funny.
This book, much praised by Evelyn Waugh when it first came out, is a small and perfect jewel. Exquisitely written; a window into another world and another era.
