WITH AN INTRODUCTION BY JULIET NICOLSONVita Sackville-West was an extraordinary woman from a long line of extraordinary women - this book tells their stories.

Her grandmother Pepita, daughter of an old-clothes pedlar, made her fortune as a dancer and had a scandalous affair with an English diplomat.

Their illegitimate daughter Victoria, Vita's mother, spent her childhood hidden in a convent but went on to be the glamorous mistress of Knole, one of the grandest old houses in England.

Vita brings her legendary wit, passion and eccentricity to this colourful family portrait.
