Anne Glenconner’s glittering life hasn’t always been golden. As she revealed in her astonishing bestselling memoir Lady in Waiting, it has been one of stark contrasts – from growing up in the splendour of Holkham Hall to living in a tent in the jungle of Mustique, from travelling the world with Princess Margaret to coping with her wildly unpredictable husband Lord Glenconner.
She has also survived the loss of two of her sons and nursed a third son back from a coma.
Now in her ninetieth year, and at her happiest, Anne brings her bracing honesty, characteristic wit, and courage to reflect on and reveal more about her long and unexpected life, and what it’s taught her.
Whatever Next? is the richly entertaining proof that staying open to every new adventure and being ready for whatever happens sets an inspiring example for us all.
