About this book
Paperback edition of Holroyd's experimental biographical book which charts the lives of a number of unknown women, including Alice Keppel and Eva Fairfax. 'A subtle paean to the art of biography... It glows with the energy of lives investigated, restored, reanimated and celebrated.' Sarah Bakewell, "Sunday Times"
Deals with a company of unknown women: Alice Keppel who was the mistress of both the second Lord Grimthorpe and the Prince of Wales; Eve Fairfax who was Lord Grimthorpe's abandoned fiancee and sometime muse of Auguste Rodin; and, the novelist Violet Trefusis who was the lover of Vita Sackville-West.
