er Jonathan. a Julliard School dropout and barfly. wrestles with dashed dreams and a past riddled with tragic sins.
Australian. Pamela Lyndon Travers. who came to London in 1924 from Queensland as a journalist. She became involved with Theosophy. traveled in the literary circles of W.B. Yeats and T.S. Eliot. and became a disciple of the famed spiritual guru. Gurdjieff. She famously clashed with Walt Disney over the adaptation of the Mary Poppins books into film. Travers. whom Disney accused of vanity for ‚;thinking you know more about Mary Poppins than I do.’ was as tart and opinionated as Julie Andrews’s big-screen Mary Poppins was cheery. Yet it was a love of mysticism and magic that shaped Travers’s life as well as the character of Mary Poppins. The clipped. strict. and ultimately mysterious nanny who emerged from her pen was the creation of someone who remained inscrutable and enigmatic to the end of her ninety-six years. Valerie Lawson’s illuminating biography provides the first full look whose personal journey is as intriguing as her beloved characters.
