    1. When I picked up this book and read the first few pages, I could never have guessed how the plot would unfold! It's a real treat when a book keeps you guessing! I enjoyed it thoroughly and would recommend it to my friends/family!

    2. Quentin Bell is not generally known for his fiction, but in this take-off on gender-bending he shows off his skills nicely. The story of Mary Brandon takes a page from Bell's aunt Virginia Woolf's "Orlando", but its time period is limited only to the length of one person's lifetime. Written as though it were a true tale of a man's life as he lives it as a woman, the book draws the reader in and keeps one wondering how he/she pulled of the deception and why he/she was forced to do it.Born a man, [...]

    3. How unfortunate that the "book cover image" is "not on hand", to use the terminology of ""; the cover illustration, "attributed to James McNeill Whistler" -- but I have a reason to believe, actually painted by Quentin Bell himself -- is a captivating portrait of a Lady Brandon, the suffragette and philanthropist who is the central subject of this study. Quentin Bell, the author, is nephew to Virginia Woolf, and also her biographer (or rather, I should say, one of her legion of biographers). No o [...]

    4. In his foreword to this book Quentin Bell quotes a biography of Mary Brandon: " her motivation was right through her life completely devoid of egotism and of sordid calculations of any kind." Then he adds: "Brave words indeed, but if the following narrative be true they may have to be rewritten."This remarkable little book about a fairly obscure woman, Mary Brandon, who lived in Canada, the USA and England from 1870-1942 has some stunning revelations about the truth of her life.
