Rebecca West: A Life has been added to your Cart. Glendinning, who knew West, does a fine job of bringing out her genius, but does not shy away from her paranonia, vindictiveness, self-absorption and multiple other self-inflicted miseries. While I can respect West for her courageous stand against communisim in general and Stalinism in particular (in a time when it was the epitome of gauche to be anti-communist), it seems to me that hers was, in the end, a terribly sad life, made that way her own choices and her refusal to re-evaluate those decisions later.

Complete summary of Victoria Glendinning's Rebecca West: A Life. eNotes plot summaries cover all the significant action of Rebecca West: A Life. While deftly revealing these conflicts, Glendinning also shows West displaying the vigor and originality that brought her literary fame, producing such landmark books as BLACK LAMB AND GREY FALCON, THE MEANING OF TREASON, and THE FOUNTAIN OVERFLOWS. Troubles that might have destroyed a lesser person barely slowed her down: assorted physical complaints, strange hallucinatory episodes, and irrevocable estrangement from her son. Glendinning makes it clear that West was a writer before all else.
