A sparklingly witty memoir, which takes us on a seductive journey from wartime Jerusalem to the heart of Fleet Street, providing a riveting outsider s view of English cultural life.

Miriam Gross tells her story in a series of vivid vignettes life as an only child of ambitious parents in Jerusalem; her bohemian school days at the progressive Dartington Hall in Devon; coming of age at Oxford (where she had a brief romance with the young Kris Kristofferson); and then finding her place in British journalism, a pre-spellcheck world populated by chauvinists, scholars and bon-vivants who seemed rarely to miss a deadline despite spending more time at lunch than at their desks.

This is a story of remarkable characters, in which the author s friendships with many of the key figures of 20th century intellectual life and her many infatuations, requited and unrequited, are recounted with the sort of self-deprecating candour that makes this memoir a classic of its kind.
