From inside front flap: "Mothers aren't good subjects for biographies unless like Queen Victoria or Cleopatra." This was Nellie Grant's view of the "deplorable habit" of writing about one's mother. Her daughter Elspeth Huxley, author of The Flame Tress of Thika, had a great affection for Nellie, and in a delightful memoir, with a selection of her letters, she paints an intimate portrait of a courageous, amusing and observant individual whose zest of life withstood many batterings.
