Victoria Glendinning

Write Review

Rated 0

Biography: general, Prose: non-fiction

A loving but clear-eyed portrait of a family and an era, this is Victoria Glendinning's first book- unavailable for twenty five years.

''I always wanted everything so frantically, and I'm just the person that can't have them.''

Based on family papers and memories, this picture of middle class life at the end of the nineteenth century tells the poignant story of Winnie Seebohm, Victoria Glendinning's great-aunt, who in 1885 was one of the early students at Newnham College, Cambridge. Though much loved by her family, Winnie was stifled in her desire for life and died at the age of twenty-two.
