Book excerpt/synopsis : Anne Glenconner's glittering life hasn't always been golden. As she revealed in her astonishing bestselling memoir Lady in Waiting, it has been one of stark contrasts - from growing up in the splendour of Holkham Hall to living in a tent in the jungle of Mustique, from travelling the world with Princess Margaret to coping with her wildly unpredictable husband Lord Glenconner. She has also survived the loss of two of her sons and nursed a third son back from a coma. Now in her ninetieth year, and at her happiest, Anne brings her bracing honesty, characteristic wit, and courage to reflect on and reveal more about her long and unexpected life, and what it's taught her. As a wife, she became a master in the art of keeping the peace, knowing when to pick her battles, and when she needed help. As a hostess, she acquired great practical skills in throwing marvellous parties and looking after magnificent homes, and, as a lady in waiting, became well versed in diplomacy and etiquette. It was as a mother she learnt the toughest lessons of all, and through them the value of friendship, family, and laughter to get her through the worst moments in life, as well as celebrate the best of them. Anne Glenconner's Whatever Next? is the richly entertaining proof that staying open to every new adventure and being ready for whatever happens sets an inspiring example for us all.
Download PDF or read online Whatever Next? Book by Tony Porter and published by Troubador Publishing Ltd. This book was released on 2016-02-18 with total page 264 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt/synopsis : “Biba’s fame grew and grew on an international basis, and brought famous stars of the sixties into the shop. Twiggy, a close friend of Barbara and Fitz, was often there. During my time Marianne Faithful, Cilla Black, Mia Farrow and Yoko Ono all came in. On one occasion, word went round that Brigitte Bardot was in the shop, and I couldn’t resist going in to see my favourite star.” After a sickly start to his life, Tony Porter certainly made up for it – he started his career selling paint for ICI, who later sent him to Nigeria. There he married Beatrice and they had three children. Brought home 8 years later following the outbreak of the Biafran war, he left ICI and immersed himself in the swinging 60s, painting his convertible Citroen brown and selling high fashion for the Kensington Biba store, founded by his sister-in-law Barbara Hulanicki. Subsequently, Tony left Biba to start his own fashion PR business in the West End of London, and was also part of the group that set up the British (later London) Fashion Week. With the help of Beatrice, their PR Company prospered, enabling them to buy a yacht, and in due course even tiny Burgh Island, lying off the South coast of Devon. Having restored its Art Deco hotel, they sold the island and Tony is concentrating on his new career as a writer. Punctuated by his laugh-a-minute style, Whatever Next? is a unique biography of a life spent at the forefront of British fashion. This book will be enjoyed by those interested in the fashion industry, but more broadly by readers looking for an entertaining narrative of an unbelievable life.

Download PDF or read online Whatever Happened to the C86 Kids? Book by Nige Tassell and published by Nine Eight Books. This book was released on 2022-08-18 with total page 356 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt/synopsis : In 1986, the NME released a cassette that would shape music for years to come. A collection of twenty-two independently signed guitar-based bands, C86 was the sound and ethos that defined a generation. It was also arguably the point at which 'indie' was born. But what happened next to all those musical dreamers? Some of the bands, like Primal Scream, went on to achieve global stardom; others, such as Half Man Half Biscuit and the Wedding Present, cultivated lifelong fanbases that still sustain their careers thirty-five years later. Then there were the rest, who ultimately imploded in a riot of paisley shirts, bad drugs and general indifference from the record-buying public. Now, for the first time, music journalist Nige Tassell tracks down the class of C86 and recounts their stories, both tragic and uplifting. Yet, while the pursuit of long-lost musicians can often manifest as earnest hagiography, Tassell's unique, light-hearted approach makes this a very human story of ambition, hope, varying degrees of talent and what happens after you give up on pop - or, more precisely, after pop gives up on you. It's a world populated by bike-shop owners, architecture professors, dance-music producers, record-store proprietors, birdwatchers, solicitors, caricaturists and even a possible Olympic sailor - and let's not forget the musician-turned-actor gainfully employed as Jeremy Irons' body double... More than simply the tale of the tape, Whatever Happened to the C86 Kids? is an exploration of C86's wide-reaching and often surprising legacy.

Download PDF or read online At Swim, Two Boys Book by Jamie O'Neill and published by Simon and Schuster. This book was released on 2002-04-01 with total page 576 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt/synopsis : Praised as “a work of wild, vaulting ambition and achievement” by Entertainment Weekly, Jamie O’Neill’s first novel invites comparison to such literary greats as James Joyce, Samuel Beckett and Charles Dickens. Set during the year preceding the Easter Uprising of 1916—Ireland’s brave but fractured revolt against British rule—At Swim, Two Boys is a tender, tragic love story and a brilliant depiction of people caught in the tide of history. Powerful and artful, and ten years in the writing, it is a masterwork from Jamie O’Neill. Jim Mack is a naïve young scholar and the son of a foolish, aspiring shopkeeper. Doyler Doyle is the rough-diamond son—revolutionary and blasphemous—of Mr. Mack’s old army pal. Out at the Forty Foot, that great jut of rock where gentlemen bathe in the nude, the two boys make a pact: Doyler will teach Jim to swim, and in a year, on Easter of 1916, they will swim to the distant beacon of Muglins Rock and claim that island for themselves. All the while Mr. Mack, who has grand plans for a corner shop empire, remains unaware of the depth of the boys’ burgeoning friendship and of the changing landscape of a nation.
