Condition: Very Good/None issued

Pan, 1999. Really good condition, less than 500g for post, 482 clean pages and tight binding. Black and White photographs included. Book reviews have been very positive re this work > The book has the serious purpose and the sense of balance of the historian infused with sympathy and the warmth of admiration for what Ms David stood for and what she achieved . . . A remarkably rounded and convincing portrait.’ Guardian ‘Chaney writes particularly well throughout on the roots of David’s interest in food, and on how her writing is about so very much more than food.’ Literary Review ‘Chaney’s biography has enough detail to satisfy the most demanding David-worshipper. . . and she is keenly alert to the wider cultural framework.’ Mail on Sunday ‘This thoughtful, meticulously researched biography illuminates . . . an extraordinary talent, an extraordinary life, expertly unravelled in a biography worthy of its subject.’ The Times ...My comment - when you do even a shallow dive into the Elizabeth David waters you quickly discover the walls & pseudo windows around the David legend & Chaney's book is a great part of the understanding, no doubt Artemis' official bio is as well.. Reprint. Paperback. Very Good/None issued. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
