Ex-library book with usual stamps and markings.Spine ends and corners bumped, page edges pale brown (seen before in this edition, a few page corners creased; interior pages clean, no binding problems. Unclipped dust wrapper with no library markings, is wrinkled and edgeworn.; In this rather scarce study of E. M. Delafield and her works, the reader discovers how the talented novelist's own life provided the fodder for the enchanting Provincial Lady series and many other highly successful volumes. (Included in this biography is Delafield's account of her time in a Belgian convent.) Like the Provincial Lady, she lived in a Devonshire village and was married with two children. 'Delafield's domineering mother was the novelist Mrs. Henry de la Pasture and her father was an Anglo-French Count. The author of this biography, Lady Violet Powell, superbly analyzes the most important Delafield novels, published over half a century ago.'; Recommended by Provincial Lady addict Holly H.of the ATS, AT, and DES email discussion groups.
