More Brilliance: ES review of Her Brilliant Career

& another review of Her Brilliant Career, this time by Claire Harman in the Evening Standard.

By the way, I think this reviewer is a bit harsh about the level of achievement of these women.  In most of these professions, there weren’t three or four more famous women than the ones Rachel Cooke discusses.  As for Jacquetta, A Land was actually very well-known and successful in its day!  Though the marriage to someone as famous as Priestley (whose WW2 broadcasts certainly made him a national figure) was of course significant in raising her profile during the 1950s.
