Product Details

Praise

“There will always be people for whom her books are part of their mind’s life, and people who are discovering her for the first time as if entering a lighted room.” —Victoria Glendinning, The Guardian

“To read Bedford’s work is to bask in the presence of someone at once German, French, and English—at the very least—who knew these countries from deep within herself and was able to enjoy their distinctions without ever belittling or simplifying them. If the word cosmopolitan had been coined with a particular literary figure in mind, it might have been Sybille Bedford.” —Sylvia Brownrigg, The Paris Review
 
“Bedford’s style: speed, omission, the sharp bite of event, without the tedious explanation. She won’t waste our time on what, she assumes, we already understand. That is one of the joys of reading her: she thinks we are as sophisticated as she is. Her writing is like the conversation of a clever, worldly friend who we wish would come by more often. Her sentences are frequently incomplete, her grammar non-standard, her chapter titles a brazen lie.” —Joan Acocella, The New Yorker
