The classic story of four nineteenth-century women who, for different reasons, gravitated to the wildness of the Middle East and North Africa.
Lesley Blanch was born in London, England, and has travelled over most of the globe. She began her career as a painter, illustrator and theatrical designer, but in 1937 transferred her allegiance to journalism and became features editor of London VOGUE. Her essays and articles have since appeared in most of Britain's leading periodicals, including the OBSERVER and the NEW STATESMAN. Her website is at www.lesleyblanch.com
Their true stories, first told grippingly by Blanch in 1954, are amazing...makes you realise that we, with our wimpish long-haul packages and compulsory travel insurance, don't know we're born. -- Val Hennessy * DAILY MAIL *
