Not Only But Also, Paperback / softback Book

Not Only But Also Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


After more than sixty years in publishing, Valerie Mendes steps aside from her own fiction to offer us a unique glimpse into the professional, pioneering and private strands of her life.

In Not Only But Also we read about the major events that shaped her work, the people who encouraged her to write, and those who remain closest to her heart.

Honest, witty, revealing and brave, Not Only But Also celebrates a unique and fascinating life.

"I found my mother's Memoir very touching." - Sir Sam Mendes CBE, Theatre and Film Director
