This review is from: An English Affair (Hardcover)
A terrific read, taking us first through the dramatis personae of the Profumo Affair, and then through the case itself. No-one comes out of it with much sympathy, but the writing is superb, clear, amusing in many places, laugh-out-loud in others, and desperately sad most of the way. I would thoroughly recommend it, particularly to anyone who has a memory of those extraordinary times, and to anyone who thinks that feminism hasn't achieved anything over the last 50 years.
