About the Author

Vita Sackville-West, the celebrated writer, was a prolific poet and author. Her most famous works include 'The Edwardians', 'All Passion Spent', 'Passenger to Teheran' and the classic poem 'The Land', which won the Hawthornden Prize in 1927. With her husband she created the magnificent and hugely influential gardens at their home, Sissinghurst Castle. In 1946 she was made a Companion of Honour for her services to literature. She died in 1962.

Reviews

PRAISE FOR PASSENGER TO TEHERAN 'Passenger to Teheran is utterly different from a returned traveller's lecture - It gives pleasure because it describes pleasure, illuminated by what Winifred Holtby called 'the lucid tranquility of her lovely prose.' She could describe a scene, a person, an emotion with enviable spontaneity, plunging her hands into the treasury of the English language as greedily as into the jewel-chests of the Shah. It is a glittering book.' - Nigel Nicolson, in his introduction to Passenger to Teheran; 'It's awfully good - I didn't know the extent of your subtleties. The whole book is full of nooks and crannies, the very intimate things one says in print.' - Virginia Woolf, in a letter to Vita Sackville-West; '.. . we are told what Miss Sackville-West saw in Persia, but always with such an artistic touch, such an individual style, that it is the traveller who mostly holds our attention.' - Daily Telegraph; 'She pursues the good, the true and the beautiful with relentless tenacity and a charming style.' - New York Times; 'A glittering jewel of a book.' - Publishers Weekly; 'Brilliant style... a lyrical period piece which contains passages of unquestionable beauty.' - Library Journal
