Illustrated / decorative end papers. From the cover: “1921. In the wilds of a Malaysian jungle, a clutch of small British children are being brought up by a Swiss nanny… thus Suzanne St Albans begins her delightful memoir. From an eccentric childhood in Malaysia, the south of France, and occasionally Britain, to her years as a young news reporter in Algeria and Italy during World War II, Suzanne St Albans has had an extraordinary life. Formal schooling may have taken a back seat but hers was a childhood rich in experience. Eventually Suzanne and her two siblings were sent to proper schools, but once the war started they had to escape from occupied France to England. There Suzanne started her working life as a library assistant. She eventually wormed her way into the secret service (Psychological Warfare Branch) and landed in Algiers.”
