Full marks for trying : an unlikely journey from the Raj to the rag trade
Keenan, Brigid, 1939-2016
Articles
Brigid Keenan was never destined to lead a normal life. When she was 10, she overheard her mother describe her as 'desperately plain', and it was from that moment she decided that she had to rely on something different: glamour, eccentricity, character, a career - anything, so as not to end up at the bottom of the pile. And in classic Brigid style, she somehow ended up with them all. Candid, wickedly funny and surprisingly touching, 'Full Marks for Trying' is a coming-of-age memoir that will delight, entertain, and make you cry with laughter.
