A rather bemused bride

Cannibalism, Dickens, farm mud, happy marriages, serial escape artists and hunting rifles feature in our new biographies. 'Unaccompanied women : late life adventures in love, sex, and real estate' by Jane Juska tells what happened after the 66 year-old author placed a personal ad. The discovery of teenage Nina Lugovskaya's diary by the NKVD was enough for treason charges to be placed against her family in 'I want to live : the diary of a young girl in Stalin's Russia'.
