BIOGRAPHY
When the author was 13, the book White Mischief—about decadent pre-WWII settlers in Kenya—told her what her parents never had: her great-grandmother Idina Sackville was a serial divorcer who left her sons in England to become the "high priestess" of the scandalous "Happy Valley Set." Here Osborne mines family secrets to bring Idina to life. Intoxicating.
