That Woman: The Life of Wallis Simpson, Duchess of Windsor Anne Sebba

Bestselling biography of the enduringly fascinating Wallis Simpson

One of Britain's most distinguished biographers turns her focus on one of the most vilified women of the twentieth century. Historian Anne Sebba has written the first full biography by a woman of Wallis Simpson, Duchess of Windsor.

'That woman', as she was referred to by the Queen Mother, became a hate figure for ensnaring a British king and destabilising the monarchy. Neither beautiful nor brilliant, she nevertheless became one of the most talked-about women of her generation, and she inspired such deep love and adoration in Edward VIII that he gave up a throne and an empire for her. Wallis lived by her wit and her wits, while both her apparent and alleged moral transgressions added to her aura and dazzle.

Based on new archives and material only recently made available, this scrupulously researched biography sheds new light on the character and motivations of a powerful, charismatic and complex woman.

That Woman Bewertungen

Madonna's new film fictionalises the affair between Edward VIII and Wallis Simpson, while this life tells the true story * DAILY TELEGRAPH *
The publication of this intriguing reassessment of her [Simpson's] controversial life could not be more timely ... an illuminating and absorbing read -- Katherine Whitbourn * DAILY MAIL *
Commendably restrained ... Sebba's real coup is the discovery of letters between Wallis and Ernest, dated long after she had become involved with Edward * INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY *
A well-rounded and often moving portrait * CAMBRIDGESHIRE JOURNAL *
