This is a charming, lightweight memoir by a prolific novelist of the early 20th century who now has been nearly forgotten. Her one remaining claim to fame is that she wrote "The Lodger", which was made into a movie by Alfred Hitchcock early in his career, starring Ivor Novello.

Mrs. Belloc Lowndes was the sister of Hilaire Belloc, and her memoir is about setting up housekeeping in the Westminster section of London in the late 1890s when she married Frederick Lowndes, and descriptions of their neighbors, both prominent and little-known. ( )
