The Toast of the Kit-Cat Club: A Life of Lady Mary Wortley Montagu

Bloodaxe 2005

‘Who would have thought you could catch a person, a lifetime, in about sixty poems? …Each poem addresses a moment, offers a piercing insight, opens a window and leaves the different possibilities blowing through… I love the woman they are written about, and I find this tribute from one writer to another both dazzling and moving.’

Isobel Grundy (Introduction to The Toast of the Kit-Cat Club)
