Dear Dodie by Valerie Grove

£2.99

Product description

Frank and Funny, unorthodox, liberated and quintessentially English, Dodie Smith, was the author of those immortal classics, THE HUNDRED AND ONE DALMATIONS and I CAPTURE THE CASTLE. One of the most successful dramatists of her generation, she spent the war years in America, befriended Christopher Isherwood and, through Walt Disney's film, became a household name. I have nothing but praise for this engrossing book, which on the one hand recreates a recent, but forgotten theatrical age, and on the other should introduce Dodie to a host of new readers. Antonia Fraser LITERARY REVIEW Beautifully written, warm and lively, with enough detchment for us to see Dodie for ourselves. . . Full of life and zip. Joanna Trollope A successful portrait of a powerful and original woman of devastating wit and intelligence. Elspeth Barker. INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY
