Description
Born in England and raised in Kenya, Beryl Markham was a notorious beauty who trained racehorses and had scandalous affairs, though today she is most remembered for her pioneering nonstop flight from England to North America, becoming the first woman to fly solo across the Atlantic, east to west. The biographer of the Mitford sisters and editor of Markham's posthumous short story collection The Splendid Outcast, Mary Lovell visited Markham in Nairobi and interviewed her extensively before her death in 1986; "every page" of her portrait "is filled with revelations, gossip and fascinating details about Markham" (NYTBR).
