Moon:Whatever next?, lessons from an unexpected life:2022 Moon
Author: Glenconner, Anne
Year: 2022
Language: English
Type: Moon
Class Number: 941.085092
Publisher: Hodder & Stoughton
Physical or Electronic: Physical
ISBN: 9781529395754
Note: Anne Glenconner's glittering life hasn't always been golden. As she revealed in her astonishing bestselling memoir 'Lady in Waiting', it has been one of stark contrasts - from growing up in the splendour of Holkham Hall to living in a tent in the jungle of Mustique, from travelling the world with Princess Margaret to coping with her wildly unpredictable husband Lord Glenconner. Tragically, she has also survived the loss of two of her sons and nursed a third son back from a coma. Now in her ninetieth year, and at her happiest, Anne brings her bracing honesty, characteristic wit and courage to reflect on and reveal more about her long and unexpected life, her extremely volatile marriage, and what it's taught her. As a wife, she became a master in the art of keeping the peace, knowing when to pick her battles, when she needed help - and when to take a lover.
