Sylvia Brookes narrative spans 80 years, and is a unique personal history enriched by vivid anecdotes too marvellous to have been contrived. The exotic heart of her memoirs is her story of her marriage to Vyner Brooke, last of a long tyrannical line of White Rajahs of Sarawak, and her long years as his consort amongprimitive people in a land she instantly recognised as home. Of her womanizing husband, who had girls until he was 87,she says with abiding affection, you have to admire a man like that.
