In the winter of 1924, alone after the death of her beloved sister, Edith Olivier thought her life was over at 51. For Rex Whistler, a 19-year-old art student, it was just beginning. This dual biography traces the remarkable friendship that would transform their lives, bringing the young artist into contact with such influential figures as the Sitwells, Siegfried Sassoon and John Betjeman, and giving Edith the self-confidence to embark on a career as a writer.
