Great Granny Webster (New York Review Books Classics)

Caroline Blackwood


nice Granny Webster is Caroline Blackwood's masterpiece. Heiress to the Guinness fortune, Blackwood used to be celebrated as an exceptional good looks and marvelous raconteur lengthy earlier than she made her identify as a strikingly unique author. This macabre, mordantly humorous, partially auto-biographical novel unearths the gothic craziness backstage within the nice homes of the aristocracy, as witnessed during the unsparing eyes of an orphaned teenage lady. nice Granny Webster herself is a wonderful monster, the chilliest of matriarchs, presiding with steely self-regard over a panorama of ruined lives.
