At the age of five Angela Huth decided she would become a writer.
Hers was an idiosyncratic childhood. Her parents were known to be a highly glamorous couple: Harold was a famous actor and film director who possessed legendary charm; Bridget was known for her lively sense of humour, fluency in foreign languages and her penchant for giving memorable parties. After her education ended prematurely – Bridget didn’t believe in university for women – Angela went from reluctant débutante to professional writer, switching from journalism to short stories, novels, plays for television and the stage.
‘She is an excellent exponent of the traditional English social comedy . . . she is in perfect control’ Daily Telegraph
