Taken Care Of by Edith Sitwell

Taken Care Of: the Autobiography of Edith Sitwell. 1965 Atheneum, second printing, 239 pages. Sitwell was a British critic and poet, known for her lavish costumes, which became the butt of many jokes, and for her wit and support of other writers. According to Kirkus Reviews: "Like everything about her, Dame Edith's posthumous autobiography goes against the grain: it's chatty and pompous, brilliant and addlepated, the prose blending a kind of 18th century austerity with modernist nose-thumbing. 

Condition: Jacket in good- condition, chips and creases with a small tear on the front, book in VG condition.

"Then, suddenly, she forgave me for my existence."
