From Library Journal:

Talbot Rice lived a fascinating life. She was a child in St. Petersburg during the Russian Revolution; a student at Oxford with Evelyn Waugh and Dorothy Sayers; an expatriate in Paris in the 1920s, when Gertrude Stein and Hemingway were there; and a resident of "Byzantium" (that is, Istanbul) from the 1930s to the 1950s with archaeologist husband David Talbot Rice. The last adventures are the best part of the book. Although Talbot Rice's privileged life in Russia is inherently interesting, she fails to convey much about the experience, and her anecdotes about the many celebrities she met are generally trivial rather than enlightening. Hard-core lovers of autobiography or those with a deep interest in Byzantine archaeology will find this book of interest.?Jean E.S. Storrs, Enoch Pratt Free Lib., Baltimore, Md.
