"Following no diktats but the need for a place and a space to write, Sybille Bedford's life has been that of the free-spirited, committed artist: precarious, passionate and frequently impoverished. At the same time, it has been a life richly lived: full of incident, impetuousness, danger, fun, friends, lovers, mentors, art and writing." "Whether evoking the simple joys of a slow dinner with friends under the open sky or tracing the heartrending outline of an intimate betrayal, recalling a madcap twenty-four-hour dash from northern France to Rome or remembering a languorous summer on Capri, Sybille Bedford offers us a reflection on how history imprints itself on private lives."--BOOK JACKET." ;
