Mother Anguish: A Memoir

A gripping, no-holds-barred origin story from one of London's most beloved socialites. In this candid memoir Basia lays bare the many vicissitudes of her youth and examines her tumultuous relationship with her mother; a dazzling, riotous and truly eccentric character with an explosive dark side. After a bucolic childhood in rural Surrey, Basia spent her adolescence in London living with Camilla and a string of surrogate fathers. Abandoned to her own devices following the arrival of Camilla's despotic second husband, she quickly rose to become a teenage 'It girl' of high society before an unplanned pregnancy and fall from grace led her to flee to Australia. Trapped in an unhappy marriage in a dismal and isolated suburb of Melbourne, her increasingly unhinged mother soon followed her and the situation deteriorated, leaving Basia surrounded by alcoholism, abuse and death while trying to protect her two young children. Following a narrow escape and lengthy custody proceedings, Basia's story is one of redemption, as she has reclaimed the life that misfortune dispossessed her of and has been one of the leading lights of London society, and no stranger to the royal household, throughout the many years since.
