Rebecca West, Paperback (July 2012)» View all books by Victoria Glendinning
I had never met anything like her before, H G Wells wrote of meeting Rebecca West in 1913, and I doubt if there ever was anything like her before. Born Cicily Fairfield, West renamed herself after the character she had once played in Ibsen's "Rosmersholm". This 'short' biography accounts for and explores West's legacy.
UK Kirkus Review » Trollope is actually jolly good, in spite of the hearty philistinism of his braying groupies. He understood the English middle classes, in their extraordinary ordinariness, better than most. I never think he is quite in the same league as Dickens, George Eliot, and one book by Thackeray. Victoria Glendinning is in love with him, and is just about the best literary biographer in the world at the height of her powers. She has sent me back to the oeuvre, which is gratifyingly huge (part of the attraction for Trollopians: they never need read anything else), and persuaded me that he is good on women, and no more anti-Semitic than his John Bull contemporaries. Review by Philip Howard (Kirkus UK)
