Let the flowers go: a life of Mary Cholmondeley
Oulton, C. 2009. Let the flowers go: a life of Mary Cholmondeley. London Pickering & Chatto.
Born in 1859 of an aristocratic background, Mary Cholmondeley was a gifted writer. Producing a number of well-received novels, her main success came with the controversial satire Red Pottage (1899), a favourite amongst British troops in the Boer War and even enjoyed by Queen Victoria. Something of an enigma, she was often portrayed as an unambitious spinster to whom celebrity had come as a surprise. On the contrary, however, by the time of her sudden fame, she was already an established writer, having published a number of titles since 1887.
