Bought 12 Dec 2008 – The Works

Biography of the author.  At pains to explain she was not just a children’s writer (I have The Shuttle on my TBR although I’m worrying that it’s much darker than I’d realised now I’ve read the biog), this also goes to great pains to record every year of the subject’s life.  There are a few clunky passages and while workmanlike, it didn’t really set me alight and looking to gallop through it, like a good biography can for me (cf Cecil Beaton or any of the Holroyds)

But a well researched and put together book with a lot of information and great photographs.
