The Rainbow Comes and Goes




The first volume of Diana Cooper's witty, gossipy and sparkling autobiography – the perfect evocation of a bygone age.

Lady Diana Cooper was a star of the early twentieth stage, screen and social scene. This first instalment of her sparkling autobiography tells of her upbringing, her beautiful artistic mother and aristocratic father, her debut into high society and the glittering parties - 'dancing and extravagance and lashing of wine, and charades and moonlit balconies and kisses' - which were interrupted with the outbreak of the First World War. This volume ends with Diana's marriage to the 'love of her life', diplomat and politician Duff Cooper.

Praise for The Rainbow Comes and Goes

A delightful memoir

Juliet Nicolson, Sunday Telegraph Magazine

Poetic, idiosyncratic, poignant, funny, unflagging, scintillating, simple, stylish; not the book of the season, or of the bedside table; a book...to be read and reread and loved for a lifetime.

Evelyn Waugh

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

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

Each reader will have his favourite passage...it is witty, original and modish and cuts a stylistic dash... She is a born memoirist

New Statesman

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