On the Wilder Shores of Love : A Bohemian Life, Paperback Book

On the Wilder Shores of Love : A Bohemian Life Paperback


Most famous for The Wilder Shores of Love, her book about four women travellers, Lesley Blanch was a scholarly romantic and a bold writer. Her lifelong passion was for Russia, the Balkans and the Middle East.

At heart a nomad, she spent the greater part of her life travelling the remote areas her books record so vividly.

Edited by her goddaughter Georgia de Chamberet, who was working with her in her centenary year, this book collects together the story of Blanch's marriage, previously published only in French; a selection of her journalism which brings to life the artistic melting pot that was London between the wars; and a selection of her most evocative travel pieces.

Illustrated with photos alongside a selection of line drawings by Lesley Blanch
