Synopsis: Constance Garnett was a translator of Russian classics, a pioneer of women's rights, a great traveller and an ardent rationalist and atheist. This biography features such individuals as George Bernard Shaw, Lenin, H. G.Wells, Katherine Mansfield, Conrad and H.E.Bates.

About the Author: Richard Garnett spent his working life in publishing and has written children's fiction. He has translated about a million words - though not from Russian. A son of David Garnett, Constance's only child, he was twenty-three when his grandmother died, so his account of her life is not only lively and well researched, it is also personal and affectionate. It uses a great deal of untouched primary source material, including Constance's splendid letters, which throw light not only on Constance but also on her contemporaries.
