The Light of Common Day




The second volume of Diana Cooper's witty, gossipy and brilliant autobiography - the perfect evocation of a bygone age.

Lady Diana Cooper had been famous from her earliest youth, the subject of gossip and adoration as the queen of the 'Coterie', an exclusive high society set. Her marriage to Duff Cooper, a rising political star, and her career on the stage and in early silent films only increased her notoriety. Her second volume of autobiography chronicles these years in the run-up to the Second World War, and her adventures as an unconventional hostess, actress, wife and mother are told in typically fast-paced, witty and brilliant style.

Spectator

Lady Diana was no ordinary upper-class English rose: She was perhaps the first person from such a background to go on the stage, wowing audiences on both sides of the Atlantic

Washington Times

She wrote three volumes of autobiography...books which are likely to hold their interest for a long time to come

The Times

Admired and adored as a classic beauty and first-division socialite during the frivolous Twenties and Thirties, Lady Diana was one of the last survivors of the set which revolved around the Prince of Wales and Mrs Simpson

The Times

One of the glittering social personalities of an era of wealth and privilege, combining as she did exceptional grace and beauty with verve and a nature of deep and intense feeling

The Times

A chronicle of people and events written with her particular brio and with her especial blend of the comic and the compassionate, and it is, too, a story of loyalties. Impulsive, natural, amusing, revealing and never for an instant pedestrian
