By Penelope Fitzgerald


It is the 1960s, in London’s West End, and Freddie is the formidable proprietress of the Temple Stage School. Freddie is a skirt-swathed enigma – a woman who by sheer force of character and single-minded thrust has turned herself and her school into a national institution. Anyone who is anyone must know Freddie.
