Product description


'Remarkable . . . If your jaw doesn't drop at least three times every chapter, you've not been paying proper attention', The Sunday Times

'A funny, sometimes tragic and disarmingly frank memoir . . . Lady in Waiting is gentle, wise, unpretentious, but above all inspiring', The Times

'A startling, rare, beguiling insight into a lost world of royalty and celebrity with as many tears as there are titles', Daily Express

'A candid, witty and stylish memoir' -- Miranda Seymour, Financial Times

'Stalwart and disarmingly honest . . . emotion resonates through this delightful memoir', The Wall Street Journal

'[Lady in Waiting] has two things going for it: the first is that it is not what it seems; it is definitely not "a lavender sort of scented memoir" . . . Its other great strength is Glenconner herself' -- Hadley Freeman, Guardian

'Funny, revelatory, poignant, occasionally jaw-dropping', Sunday Times

'A romp of an autobiography', The Times T2

'Sparkling, endearing and alarming', Times Literary Supplement

'The insider memoir of the year' -- Julian Glover, Evening Standard
