A Notable Woman : The Romantic Journals of Jean Lucey Pratt, Paperback / softback Book

A Notable Woman : The Romantic Journals of Jean Lucey Pratt Paperback / softback

Edited by Simon Garfield


'Timeless, funny and utterly absorbing' HILARY MANTELIn April 1925 at the age of fifteen, Jean Lucey Pratt started a journal that she kept until just a few days before her death in 1986, producing over a million words in 45 exercise books.

What emerges is a portrait of a truly unique, spirited woman and writer.

Never before has an account so fully, so honestly and so vividly captured a single woman's journey through the twentieth century.
