"'Waiting for Princess Margaret' is part fact, part fiction, dictated by the memory of a childhood and adolescence overhung by unexplained relations and twisted family roots. I had intended to write a novel, but the conventions were too restricting; and I knew the characters portrayed here had no need of false names or invented addresses. Indeed, a leading character in the book is Glen, a house in the Borders of Scotland - a place which has proved both a lure and a curse to many members of the family.
The fuzzy relationship between fact, fiction and memory provides the atmosphere of 'Waiting for Princess Margaret', a book belonging in all three categories. Based on fact, with the narrator's voice embedded with the voices of others; imagined as a work of fiction and inspired by memory, it is as near, for me at least, as it's possible to get to reality."
"The third volume in a sequence of Memoirs, 'Waiting for Princess Margaret will be welcomed by all those many devotees of Emma Tennant's unique literary oeuvre."
