A prominent figure in TV and the arts in Britain, Joan Bakewell has been a broadcaster for over forty years, a print journalist for over twenty years, and has published her autobiography, The Centre of the Bed. ALL THE NICE GIRLS is her first novel. She was made a Dame in 2008.
Featured on The Book Show on Sky Arts on 5 March 2009. The journalist and broadcaster at long last turns her hand to fiction with this story set in the Britain of 1942. This is a lovely novel, very evocative of the time, and contains all the ingredients you would expect from a wartime saga - romance, heroism, pain and loss. Actions and consequences will effect those involved now and and future generations. Lets hope there are more novels to come.
