Veronika  Peters - The Lady Behind the Curtain
 
 
 

 

The fascinating life of Edith Sitwell – poet, style icon and a flamboyant figure of the European avant-garde

What an adventure! One morning in May, 1927, Jane Banister, the granddaughter of the gardener at Renishaw Hall, the Sitwells' country residence, leaves the estate. She goes to London to enter service with Edith Sitwell, the family's unloved daughter.

Jane has already heard a great deal about the eccentric poet and her influential circle of friends. Edith hosts soirées in the capital, loves grand appearances and even has contacts to the royal family. Before long, Jane will be travelling to the metropoles of the world at Edith's side. But as Edith's confidante she will also get to know the lady behind the curtain and the price she pays for her unconventional life.
