Daphne Fielding

More scrapbook clippings, this from the Times back in 1997. Most authors have dull lives these days but my own research has uncovered quite a few writers who had lively backgrounds and were not above living their lives like it was a novel. I suspect I clipped this because of the mention of Duchess of Duke Street, but it might equally have been the mention of her husband, who translated a few books, including Bridge on the River Kwai by Pierre Boulle. Which gives me an excuse to run a few pictures...

The two books above were translated by Xan Fielding.
