Reviews

Now pushing 80, Huth has what every aspiring writer most desires: a distinctive voice, dry, witty and utterly clear-eyed -- Marcus Berkmann * Daily Mail *
Enchanting memoir . . . scintillating thumbnail sketches . . . She is also movingly lyrical about some English customs -- Ysenda Maxtone Graham * Country Life *
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 -- Kate Saunders * The Times *
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 * Tatler *
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 -- Violet Hudson * Spectator *
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 -- Rebecca Wallersteiner * The Lady *
Deliciously gossipy and amusingly trenchant, this is an entertaining "collection of stories from times past" -- Jane Shilling * Daily Mail *
