'Fascinating ... to be eagerly devoured’ Clarissa Dickson-Wright Most people today, if they have heard of her, associate Constance Spry with the cookery book bearing her name. But Connie was much, much more than the author of a bestselling cookery book. She was deeply unconventional, extremely charming and very determined; Spry’s life took her from the back streets of Victorian Derby to running a hugely successful business as the florist of choice for the highest of high society, organizing the flowers for royal weddings and indeed for the Queen's coronation. She endured a violent first marriage, had a lesbian affair with a cross-dressing artist and was a pioneer for working women at a time when few women had careers. Sue Shephard tells her extraordinary story with insight, wit and flair. 'Riveting.’ Jane Fearnley-Whittingstall ‘Makes you fall utterly in love with its subject’ New York Times Magazine ‘Reveals with the greatest skill and sympathy an extraordinary person - complicated, driven, sometimes secretive but gifted and artistic to an nth degree. What a story.' Elizabeth Buchan

"House and Garden has recently called Constance Spry "the first superstar florist": her heyday in England lasted from the late 1920's through the '50s, during which she arranged flowers for Elsie de Wolfe, for Wallis Simpson's wedding to the Duke of Windsor, and for Elizabeth II's coronation. But what will most endear her to today's American flower lovers is her propensity for breaking rules." "Unorthodox arrangements in alternative containers were her trademark; she fearlessly utilized anything of beauty. "Perhaps," she writes, "a leaf from the vegetable garden attracts your attention, or a spray of ripe fruit. You don't stop to think that this material is labelled, so to speak, 'for eating'; you realize it is decorative, and that is enough; it suits your purpose and you use it."" "Decrying "tame vases of flowers", she mixed blooms - a fairly daring practice in her day - in order to achieve "the thrill of the beholder" that the Dutch and Flemish achieved with their still-lifes. She reacted most of all against the imposition of arbitrary rules on an activity she felt should be spontaneous and alive. She felt "strongly that the art of flower arrangement should be a means of self-expression for everyone and that nobody should be afraid to express his feeling for color and line through this medium."" "Flower Decoration reveals Constance Spry to be an English rebel with a cause and a chatty style. This, her first book, has been long out of print: it will be greeted with appreciation by today's sophisticated gardeners who, along with everyone interested in home decor, will love what HG has called her "lush, funky style". The time has come to reintroduce Constance Spry to America."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc. All Rights Reserved

With modern cookery books always at the top of the bestseller lists, Sophia Waugh looks at the differences - and the similarities - between cooking then and now. Cooking People focuses on five female writers who have revolutionised home cooking. From Hannah Woolley who was, in the seventeenth century, the first woman to make a living from cookery writing, to the much-loved Isabella Beeton and Elizabeth David, Waugh investigates the what, how and why of English eating. As both a history of food writing and book of recipes for the kitchens of today, Cooking People is a fascinating overview of the way the English have eaten over the last few centuries. Looking not at the grand dishes of the courts, but at the domestic cookery at the heart of our culture, Sophia Waugh traces the food writers who have changed the way we eat.
