All Passion Spent, Paperback


WITH AN INTRODUCTION BY JOANNA LUMLEY. When the great statesman Lord Slane dies, everyone assumes his dutiful wife will slowly fade away, the paying guest of each of her six children.

But Lady Slane surprises everyone by escaping to a rented house in Hampstead where she revels in her new freedom, revives youthful ambitions and gathers some very unsuitable companions.

Irreverent, entertaining and insightful, this is a tale of the unexpected joys of growing older.
