This is Sylvia is like no other book. Sylvia is Sandy Wilson’s cat. Or is she? For Sylvia is all that was ever meant by the successful musical comedy star of the 30’s and 40’s, of undoubtful parentage but undoubted talent, innocent of learning but womanly wise, simple of soul, popular, beautiful. Her memoirs flow easily through the life of fashionable London, of Hollywood and Monte Carlo, the gossip columns and marriage into the aristocracy. She has known everybody - but everybody - in the theatrical and literary world. But Sylvia also has nine lives and a family of three kittens. Through her pages are scattered sketches of elegant cats which take on strangely the fashions and the personalities of the decades - and immediately we are detached and laughing at the foibles of our age, entertained by delicious satire, enchanted by the brilliance of the new star. 117 pages. Dust jacket has small tears to edges, corners and fading to edges. Illustrator: Sandy Wilson. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram. Category: Fiction; Fiction; Inventory No: 260261.
