'A lively, colourful portrait, packed with people and travel' (Daily Mail)
'Boston proves a sure-footed and sympathetic guide through the labyrinth of Blanch's self-invention' (Sunday Times)
'Boston has succeeded . . . remarkably well, in capturing the spirit and wit of a sexy and scholarly romantic' (Guardian)
'As exotic and tantalising as a tale from the Arabian Nights. Glamorous and unconventional' (Daily Express)
'Boston has . . . written a scrupulous, sympathetic, occasionally rather flowery book which . . . comes as close to the truth about any elusive and not altogether likeable subject as any biography could' (Spectator)
'Boston's affectionate and admiring biography supplies some of the detail about which her subject was notably vague, but leaves the Blanch legend largely intact' (Daily Telegraph)
'For sheer fund I recommend Lesley Blanch . . . which offers a romp through the glittering combination of fantasy and fact under which this entrancing adventuress buried the mundane details . . . of her early life. Boston's eye for a comic quote . . . adds zest to the story of a writer whose favourite motto was: "Get up and get on with it." ' (Miranda Seymour, Daily Telegraph Books of the Year)
