About this book
Bruce chronicles the long, long life of her mother, Muriel Newmarch, and her own life. Newmarch was born in London in 1903 and died in 2009, aged 106, in a care home in Sussex. Bruce brings to life a barely remembered England of satin dresses and liberty bodices.
Part biography, part memoir, all brilliantly written, Funny How Things Turn Out chronicles the long, long life of Muriel Newmarch and her daughter.
