Promotional Information

A Vision of Loveliness was a BBC Book at Bedtime and a critical success Louise Levene turns her ascerbic wit and pitch-perfect satire to the 1920s: the aftermath of the Great War, the grisly new science of pathology and the moral squeemishness of the tabloid. Perfect for fans of Nancy Mitford The author is the ballet critic of the Sunday Telegraph. She used to write and present Radio 4's Newstand, among other programmes, and is very well connected in the media

PRAISE FOR A VISION OF LOVELINESS: 'Sparkly as a Babycham, dry as a Twiglet, and honest as a tinned pie - Janey James is the perfect hilarious, sexy, rude and clear-eyed guide to swinging London. I feel like I've been out on the tiles with her all night - and I'd happily do it all again' Helen Cross 'Funny, sad and clever. For those of us who were young in the late fifties and early sixties, it's an uncanny evocation of one's past. For today's young women, it will read like gender history - and I hope it makes their jaws drop' Barbara Trapido 'A text book on the late fifties and early sixties reality ... fascinating' Mary Quant 'I loved this book. It wonderfully evokes the essence of the 1960s' Joan Collins
