Beschreibung

Introduced by Dorothy Parker. 'When I was a little girl, the ghosts were more real to me than the people.' In this perceptive and unpretentious autobiography Christian Miller recalls her privileged but at the same time deprived upper-class childhood in a castle in Scotland. Through the eye and ears of a 1920s child who seems to have seen and heard everything within the massive granite walls of her home, she gives us a unique insight into what must surely have been one of the last relics of feudal life. 'The book's fascination lies in its re-creation of life in a big house of the period. This is a book one can live in.' Daily Telegraph 'Opening the pages of this book is like stepping through the looking glass into another world.' Glasgow Herald
