More About This Title Annabel


Lady Annabel Goldsmith is a daughter of the 8th Marquess of Londonderry. In these memoirs she tells of her aristocratic upbringing with an increasingly eccentric father, a Conservative MP with strong liberal leanings, and a mother who died young from cancer. She tells of her marriages, her children, and the tragedies she has faced in her life.


“Married first to Mark Birley, founder of the hyper-exclusive, ultra-glamorous nightclub that bears her name, and then to the late, legendary Anglo-French tycoon Jimmy Goldsmith, Lady Annabel Goldsmith was the uncrowned queen of café society, privy to many of its most fascinating dramas. In her forthcoming memoir, she writes about Lord Lucan’s disappearance, Claus and Sonny von Bülow’s marriage, Princess Diana’s frequent visits, and why she was willing to share Jimmy with two other women.” —Vanity Fair
