Review Text

Born in Germany in 1911, Sybille Bedford was educated privately in England, France and Italy, and had what could be called an unconventional childhood. In 1989 she wrote this autobiographical novel charting her progress from South Germany to the North East of England via the mediterranean. Characteristically remarkable, it is brim-full of the sights and sounds of her various homes. (Kirkus UK)show more
