This is a quick read made enjoyable and very accessible by the author's conversational tone. It's written as if she's telling you all this over a cup of coffee with a conspiratorial wink now and again. For history buffs, it offers the immense appeal of being a first-person narrative of a time period that saw many hugely significant events - no less than both World Wars, universal suffrage, and the advent of radio among several other things. Add to this Powell's knack for social observation, and you have a thoroughly engaging book.
