About this book
A memoir of an extraordinary upbringing in an extraordinary house among extraordinary people. Gully Wells was the daughter of glamorous and unpredictable American journalist Dee Wells, and stepdaughter of A.J. Ayer. Their milieu included Bobby Kennedy, Mary Quant, Iris Murdoch, George Melly and Bertrand Russell, and the house, La Migoua in Provence is woven into her existence. Unsentimental and witty, it's a moving love letter to her adored mother.
