Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - THIS WEEK -

Why has a proper bi­og­ra­phy of Rose­mary Smith taken so long? This au­to­bi­og­ra­phy, is an au­thor­i­ta­tive ac­count of her life and ca­reer best­known for her Rootes ex­ploits.

This is a frank and hon­est telling, in­clud­ing as­sorted mar­riage and money trou­bles, but it’s the car stuff that shines through. The writ­ing is en­ter­tain­ing and trots along at a fair old pace. Ed­die Jor­dan sup­plies the fore­word and the smat­ter­ing of pe­riod pho­tos are in­ter­est­ing.
