Of Fielding's memoirs, Mercury Presides, Evelyn Waugh wrote: "Daphne has written her memoirs.
Contrary to what one would have expected they are marred by discretion and good taste.
The childhood part is admirable.
The adult part is rather as though Lord Montgomery were to write his life and omit to mention that he ever served in the army."
Eyre & Spottiswoode
