Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

These volumes provide as close to a self-portrait of the author as readers are likely to get. Rhys died in 1979, leaving behind only a handful of the planned sketches for her autobiography, Smile Please, which LJ's reviewer found "fascinating but frustratingly incomplete" (LJ 4/15/80). The Letters volume (LJ 6/1/84) helps fill in some of the blanks.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
This is a short and sad work by the author of Wide Sargasso Sea that conveys her feelings of leaving her home in the French West Indian colonies only to find disillusionment in Europe.It is, however, a very readable and entertaining book from one of last centuries most neglected authors.

6 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Warren Hays on August 5, 2007
Format: Mass Market Paperback
The Library Journal review on this book's Amazon page says: "These volumes provide as close to a self-portrait of the author as readers are likely to get." But that sentence doesn't actually refer to "Smile Please" -- it's from LJ's review of the Rhys's "Letters".

I apologize for rating this book as "4 stars" when I haven't seen it yet. Amazon won't let me post this warning without entering a rating.
