Coxhead, Elizabeth

£55.00

All his life, Thomas Laker has cut a swathe through any family on which he has planted himself, and his hosts have been glad and proud to endure his egtotism and his ruthless demands. For Thomas Laker is a great poet and, in his way, a great man. The devoted mistress of his late middle-age is the painter Clare Trafford, at whose lovely house on the river near Oxford he spends every summer, cossetted and adored. But Clare has a niece, Marion… Elizabeth Coxhead (1909-1979) was an English journalist, biographer and novelist who particularly flourished in the 1950s.
