A rather recent fascination with fashion and style has led me to purchase Grace Coddington's book Grace: A Memoir.
As creative director of Vogue, she has become an international icon of the industry.
It's a hefty book with large print, pictures, illustrations, and an orange jacket that is even more vivid in person.
In her acknowledgements she writes: "Given that I've barely read two books in my life that aren't picture books, no one is more surprised than me that I have produced a memoir."
I hope it will surprise me.
