LONDON BOOK REVIEW

Hi Gang, The paperback of Irrepressible is out and reviews are coming in. Nice to hear from London. This review in The Spectator is byAnne Chisholm author of biographies of Rumer Godden, Frances Partridge and Nancy Cunard, and a friend of Decca's.  She gets the book entirely.

"Her revolutionary socialist politics were as fierce as her fascist sisters’, but her great cause, the fight against racial discrimination, was as right and admirable as theirs was deplorable and wrong. She was a good writer, a fearless muckraking journalist who used her talent not just to entertain but to expose (most memorably the American funeral industry) and provoke."
