If you like biographies this is stunning. It looks to be well researched. Not only do you get to know what other famous English writers of the time thought about T.S.Elliot's first wife, but it gives you an extraordinary view of the man himself. I could never read his poems again without Vivienne in my mind. It's scholarly, but at the same time deliciously full of a sense of the outrageousness of the period in question, so much so that on reading I thought 'Oh, can I be allowed to know this?'
If you don't read biography normally, reading this book might change that.
A wonderful read, worth getting!
