"Mary Wesley published her first novel in 1983 when she was seventy years old - and went on to write nine dazzling bestsellers, including Camomile Lawn, which was made into a TV series.
Wild Mary is a remarkable book about a woman who was courageous, sensual, talented and ruthless.  Readers will enjoy her story not only for its witty anecdotes and devastating one-liners, but also for the intimate portrait it builds of a multi-layered personality in which much was hidden.  Mary Wesley talked freely to the author - yet took some of her secrets to the grave, leaving behind a number of fascinating clues."
