Clarissa Eden: A Memoir

Clarissa Eden: A Memoir Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

In 1955, at the astonishingly young age of 34, Clarissa Eden entered No. 10 Downing Street as the wife of the new Prime Minister, Anthony Eden. Born Clarissa Churchill in 1920, her uncle was the great Winston. A renowned beauty, she was at home with her mother's Liberal intellectual circle. Her close friends included some of the leading cultural figures of the 20th century: Evelyn Waugh and Orson Welles among them. As the spouse of the most important man in Britain, Clarissa Eden was inevitably privy to a multitude of top-level secrets. The Suez crisis and Eden's ill health meant that she shared just four years of Anthony's political life and eighteen months as Prime Minister's wife. This individual, discriminating and honest memoir is her first account of extraordinary times, intuitively edited by Cate Haste, co-author of The Goldfish Bowl.
