Georgia de Chamberet writes a piece on Lesley Blanch for the Guardian…

‘Everything about Lesley was unconventional and romantic: her writing, her tumultuous love life, her sartorial glamour and mischievous humour. She was erudite without being stuffy or pompous. Fearless and headstrong, she could be infuriating and grandiose. An internationalist, she opened windows on the world and was passionate about all things Russian and oriental. I treasure Alexander Pushkin’s The Golden Cockerel and Other Stories, adapted by James Reeves, which she gave to me as a child. To be with her was to enter many different worlds.’
