Description
In 1919, Lady Idina Sackville bolted from her husband and two sons to live in Africa with Josslyn Hay, Earl of Erroll, whose absurdly decadent lifestyle became a metaphor for the decline of the British Empire in James Fox's bestselling book White Mischief. Delving into troves of family letters and diaries, Sackville's great granddaughter Frances Osborne paints a sad but sympathetic portrait of the infamous seductress and her five husbands. Between the vivid descriptions of alcohol- and drug-fueled wipe-swapping parties that lasted for days, Osbourne offers insightful descriptions of Edwardian England protocol, British colonialism in Africa, the accepted standards for adultery, and the grounds for divorce.

"Rich, titled, witty, beguiling, Lady Idina Sackville had all the gifts, except, perhaps, judgement. Frances Osborne has written and enthralling account of a dazzling, troubled life."óJulian Fellowes
