B&W Photographs; 317 pages; Bumped spine ends and a few smudges to page edges. A nice copy. Unclipped dust wrapper is lightly edgeworn and slightly yellowed with a few short closed tears and faint soil.; An interesting biography of the author of "National Velvet" and "Chalk Garden" amongst others. It gives more insight into her life and explains some events that Bagnold glosses over in her memoir. Bagnold's family authorized this biography allowing Sebba to use journals, unpublished notes, and several other sources so it is not just a repetition of Bagnold's autobiography.; If you have both, we suggest reading the memoir first and then this biography. For Angela Thirkell admirers this biography states that in North End House in Rottingdean (one of the homes discussed in AT's memoir 'Three Houses'), "There was, and still is, a painting by Burne-Jones in the corner of a bedroom to amuse children made to stand there."
