I read this book as part of Simply Divine, which contains this and his previous book Now Is Not The Time For Trumpets. You think and really believe you are really reading a biography of a real person, her childhood, schooling, start of her writing career, her passions, loves and misfortunes and sadly her untimely death. Mark Binmore has created a book of wonderful characters, he really understands the way to write and keep you captivated. I love the way this book differs from his previous effort and shows strength in his knowledge of the past and what happened. Despite the "fake" biography the world as a backdrop does/did exist and this is truly remarkable to read side by side. A brilliant read.
