A truly fascinating memoir, that will appeal to the following:
1. European nobles
2. The European aristocracy
3. Polish people
4. English female tarts
Overall, a good read.

This is a work of genius, not since Kenneth Widmerpool has a character this good been created, I would love to know who the author really is. They have created this wonderful, idiotic, solipsistic shallow marvellous protagonist - it is a laugh a minute. More please we beg you, whomsoever you may be.

A simple, useful guide. J an a writer and have more than the basic level of understanding but this book still had helpful and insightful tips that I have picked up and used. I would recommend this book to anyone looking for an entry level text on the subject.
