Reviews

  • "Makes an unassailable case for [Delaney's] importance in British theatre history while showing how her posthumous reputation has been subtly slighted... splendid and illuminating"

    Observer
  • "In this subtle, thoughtful book, Selina Todd sets out to do more than simply retell Delaney’s rags-to-riches story… Instead Todd argues that Delaney offers a route to rethinking the ways in which women’s lives in the mid-20th century are routinely written up, especially by feminists"

    Guardian
  • "A clever, hopeful and cheering book…shocking and sobering on how working people have forcibly become divorced from the arts"
