Her looks attracted Cecil Beaton and the principal painters of the day. Among her friends were Aldous Huxley, T.S. Eliot, and Gertrude Stein. She rebuffed Wyndham Lewis and ardently loved the temperamental Russian painter, Pavel Tchelitchew. The 1930s she spent in penury, writing fiction, biography and verse. Only when Yeats hailed her as 'a major poet' did her work reach a wider audience, whereupon Edith Sitwell set off to conquer New York and Hollywood.
Winner of the Duff Cooper Prize and James Tait Black Memorial Prize for Biography, this is the definitive portrait of a spontaneous, gallant, yet tragically insecure woman.
'The excellence of Mrs Glendinning's book is that it remains wise and balanced while never sacrificing critical edge... It's hard to imagine a life of Edith Sitwell that could surpass it.' John Carey, Sunday Times
Inhaltsangabe: This vivid and sympathetic portrait, winner of both the Duff Cooper Prize and the James Tait Black Memorial Prize for biography, draws on Edith Sitwell's brilliantly funny and often outrageous letters to show the woman behind the public image.

Buchbeschreibung Weidenfeld and Nicholson, London, 1981. Hardcover with dust jacket Edith Sitwell began life as an odd, unloved child, but in her mid-20s she found the courage to escape from a privileged but empty home life to a shabby flat in London, where she quickly established herself as an original and pioneering poet. She spent the 1930s in penury in Paris writing novels, poetry and biographies; then, Yeats hailed her as a major poet, and in the 1940s her poems found a wide audience in their expression of the horrors of war. In the next decade she conquered New York and Hollywood. Ours is an ex-library copy in transparent protective covering and usual stamps, stickers and barcode.
