In these charming memiors, Ruth Sebag-Montefiore not only recalls her childhood growing up in a large Jewish family in the 19+20 and 1930s, but also provides revealing portraits of her fascinating relatives-her grandfather, educationalist and politician Sir Philip Magnus: her father, journalist and author Laurie Magnus, her brother, biographer Philip Magnus: and her many Montefiore, Spielman and Magnus relations, many of whom were not only prolific writers but also played leading roles in the Anglo-Jewish community. She also devotes a chapter to her illustrious forbear, Sir Moses Montefiore. Illustrated with colour and black and white photographs from the author's personal collection, A Family Patchwork highlights the joys and strains of being a member of a large, talented and prominent family. It also provides delightful account of the author's youth, her work a Bletchley Park during the war, and her subsequent marriage to her second cousin Denzil.
