The Real Enid Bly­ton

Evergreen - - Bookshelf -

Na­dia Co­hen lifts the lid on the mer­cu­rial Enid Bly­ton, the most pro­lific chil­dren’s au­thor in his­tory, with hun­dreds of books un­der her belt. This work re­veals her to be a com­plex mix – in­dus­tri­ous, shrewd, un­faith­ful and bad tem­pered – de­spite her sunny pub­lic per­sona. ( Pen & Sword, £ 19.99)
