IN THE SPOTLIGHT

The Husband-Hunters: Social Climbing in London and New York by Anne De Courcy

This new book from the best known chronicler of upper class women is greatly entertaining, but also a wonderful dissection of high society in the latter parts of the 19th century. Lindy Jones


 

BOOKSELLER PICK

Just Kids by Patti Smith

The lingering impression from this moving book was privilege. It was an absolute privilege to witness the growing friendship between two extraordinary artists, told through Patti Smith's as always beautiful words. So tenderly does she recall and bring to life the figure of Robert Mapplethorpe that I couldn't help but be overwhelmed and mourn alongside her when we inevitably lose him. This book deserves all the praise that it has received and will certainly remain on the list of great art biographies of all time. Siân McNabney
