Enchanting memoir . . . scintillating thumbnail sketches . . . She is also movingly lyrical about some English customs
Enjoyable . . . a series of vividly-written chapters, like snapshots in a high-end album. Most of these are fascinating, some hilarious; all are shot through with sparkling asides . . . a delightful memoir
Fabulous . . . dazzling . . . She may be 80, but the wit and keen powers of observation for which Huth's novels are known are not diminished a bit in this elegant and joyful memoir
Though it may not be the whole story, what a story it is . . . vividly described . . . marvellously gossipy . . . sweetly nostalgic . . . no doubt she is a thoroughly good egg: ever cheerful, a wonderfully loyal friend and as amusing and engaging a writer as one could hope to find
This elegantly written, witty memoir tells the story of [Huth's] unconventional and fascinating life . . . A remarkably candid book on a life lived in full, capturing a world as lost as Elizabeth Bowen's novels . . . Unputdownable
Now pushing 80, Huth has what every aspiring writer most desires: a distinctive voice, dry, witty and utterly clear-eyed
Deliciously gossipy and amusingly trenchant, this is an entertaining "collection of stories from times past"
