Bestselling Basia

Basia Briggs’ memoir ‘Mother Anguish’ has been a bestselling success and is about to go into its second print run; a reader sends in an image of someone reading it on the tube


When Basia Briggs launched her memoir, Mother Anguish at The Ritz in December, much analysis followed in everywhere from the Daily Mail to The Steeple Times.


In turn, aside from Basia giving radio interviews with the BBC in London, this no holds barred book has received mentions everywhere from Los Angeles to Melbourne and has rocketed into the bestseller list also.


On Friday, a canny reader – who’d read Claire Rubinstein’s review of Mother Anguish in this publication – spotted a member of the public reading it on the District & Circle Line. We share that image here and join those celebrating Basia’s phenomenal success.

  1. Well done Basia. I once wrote a book and I can only tell you that it is bloody hard work and this kind of success and publicity is much deserved.

  2. Can anyone tell me who the young lady in the picture is? She looks lovely. On that basis, I will follow Claire Rubinstein’s advice and read Basia’s book too.

  3. I have already read this book and unlike usual biographies where people boast of their achievements ,this one is full of dreadful catastrophies for which Basia accepts the blame ,so it is very refreshing to read an honest story of a flawed life. It was rivetting.

  4. I have met Basia on several occasions and Found her knowledge of history quite something else. She is anything but the “socialite” that rag the Daily mail portrays her as and I will definitely now be ordering a copy of this book.
