Rachel Cooke: Her Brilliant Career

by Jenny McPhee

Rachel Cooke, award-winning journalist for The Observer and television critic for the New Statesman will discuss her new book, Her Brilliant Career with Virginia Nicholson. The book is about 10 career women whose lives paved the way for future generations. The Guardian says her book “completely demolishes any notion that the ’50s were just a dull and domestic time for women.” The Independent calls the book “eloquent, witty and elegant.”

Virginia Nicholson is author of Millions Like Us: Women’s Lives During the Second World War, Singled Out, Charleston, and Among the Bohemians.
