Example text

Barrington New York: Dodd, Mead, 1926, pp. 377. Perdita Robinson was a leading lady of the 18th century London stage, a friend of Garrick and Sheridan who was painted by Gainsborough, and was the mistress of George IV and later Charles Fox. Under a pseudonym, Lily Adams Beck has written the biography which she feels the exquisite Perdita would have written had autobiography been a proper undertaking for an 18th century lady. Since writing the kiss-and-tell books that bring wealth and sleazy celebrity to today's actresses was denied Perdita, Beck has given us a hugely sentimental and bowdlerized accounting of her subject's life which despite the appearance of great names from the theatre focuses more on Perdita's passions than on her life as an actress.
