Blood trickles down through every generation, seeps into every marriage. An international bestseller and winner of the Whitbread Biography Award, "Bad Blood" is a tragicomic memoir of one woman's escape from a claustrophobic childhood in post-World War II Britain and the story of three generations of the author's family and its marriages. In one of the most extraordinary memoirs of recent years, "Bad Blood" brings alive in vivid detail a time -- the '40s and '50s -- not so distant from us but now disappeared. As a portrait of a family and a young girl's place in it, it is unsurpassed.

Review quote

Shockingly frank, but also witty, passionate, and utterly lacking self-pity and surprisingly uplifting. --Kirkus Reviews
