Lady Diana Cooper had been famous from her earliest youth, the subject of gossip and adoration as the queen of the 'Coterie', an exclusive high society set. Her marriage to Duff Cooper, a rising political star, and her career on the stage and in early silent films only increased her notoriety. Her second volume of autobiography chronicles these years in the run-up to the Second World War, and her adventures as an unconventional hostess, actress, wife and mother are told in typically fast-paced, witty and brilliant style.
The second volume of Lady Diana Cooper'[s memoirs covers her life from 1923 to the outbreak of war in 1939. During those years she became a famous English personality, as a woman of prodigious beauty, as a remarkable actress and as the unconventional wife of a British statesman.
