  1. I *soooo* agree with you about Flaneuse – glad it wasn’t just me! Bits of it gelled and were great, but your use of the word ‘entitled’ is exactly what I ended up feeling about it and her. I’ll obviously have to search out Wanderlust instead.

    1. It’s embarassing, isn’t it, to feel like you’re the only one in the world who can possibly feel negative about a book when the publicity is so strong. It’s like bloody Essex Serpent all over again.

  2. The only one I’ve read on this list is the Molly Keane bio which was very disappointing. A daughter really isn’t likely to be the best person to do the job, and definitely not one who seems to be both bitter and protective. I stuck with it because my grandfather knew her which added interest to the social details. The worst thing about it is that it probably means a decent biography won’t happen for years, if ever.
