Barbara Skelton, 79, novelist and memoirist
LONDON -- Barbara Skelton, a writer whose best subject was her own life of passionate abandon, has died at age 79.
Her two volumes of memoirs -- "Tears Before Bedtime" in 1987 and "Weep No More" in 1989 -- were savored for their malicious descriptions of her three husbands and numerous lovers, including King Farouk of Egypt and a police officer who came to investigate a burglary at her home.
She was married three times: to literary critic Cyril Connolly from 1950 to 1956; to the publisher Lord George Weidenfeld from 1956 to 1961; and briefly to newspaper heir Derek Jackson in 1966, becoming the fifth of his six wives.
Ms. Skelton died Saturday in Worcestershire in western England from a brain tumor, The Times reported yesterday.
The painter Michael Wishart wrote of her: "She did not sit; she curled up. In a chair, on the floor, in a train, on a beach, in the desert, in an airplane, in bed, waiting outside a mosque, she curled up, and seldom alone."
She met King Farouk while working as a cipher clerk in Cairo during World War II. The relationship resumed in 1950, shortly before her marriage to Mr. Connolly, when King Farouk was vacationing in France.
"At this time Farouk resembled a huge sawdust teddy bear badly sewn at the joints," she wrote. Mr. Connolly followed her on the two-week fling, and she paid for their return by saving money King Farouk had given her to gamble.
Mr. Connolly was co-respondent in her second divorce, as Mr. Weidenfeld had been in the first, and Ms. Skelton remained on good terms with Mr. Connolly until his death in 1974. One of Mr. Connolly's daughters by another marriage cared for Ms. Skelton in her last weeks.
She wrote two novels, "A Young Girl's Touch" in 1956 and "A Love Match" in 1969, though the second novel was withdrawn because of threats of legal action by a former friend.
Funeral arrangements were not announced. She had no children.
