About this product
- Description'I always wanted everything so frantically, and I'm just the person that can't have them.' Based on family papers and memories, this picture of middle class life at the end of the nineteenth century tells the poignant story of Winnie Seebohm, Victoria Glendinning's great-aunt, who in 1885 was one of the early students at Newnham College, Cambridge. Though much loved by her family, Winnie was stifled in her desire for life and died at the age of twenty-two.
- Author BiographyAward-winning biographer of Trollope, Elizabeth Bowen, Vita Sackville-West, Edith Sitwell and Rebecca West, Victoria Glendinning is also a literary critic, broadcaster and travel writer. She has four sons and lives in London and West Cork, Ireland.
