Abstract:

"William Shawcross's official biography of Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother, published in 2009, was a huge critical and commercial success. One of the great revelations of the book was Queen Elizabeth's insightful, witty private correspondence. Indeed, The Sunday Times of London described her letters as "wonderful ... brimful of liveliness and irreverence, steeliness and sweetness." Now Shawcross has put together a selection of her letters, drawing on the vast wealth of material in the Royal Archives and at Glamis Castle. Queen Elizabeth was a prolific correspondent, from her early childhood before World War I to the very end of her long life at the beginning of the twenty-first century, and her letters offer readers a vivid insight into the real person behind the public face."--Jacket.
