Start your review of Freya Stark: A Biography
Well written, of course, but little more than a personal vendetta against Stark, a woman Izzard had met and didn't like. Every single episode of Stark's life related here by Izzard is skewed by the writer's personal dislike for her subject resulting in an extremely biased presentation of Freya Stark's life and accomplishments. The `great reveal' of the book that Stark invented herself is simply silly; of course Stark invented herself, we all do to various degrees and writers more than most.
