Chatto & Windus 231437 London 1986 0701127317 / 9780701127312 Hardcover Very Good Condition Very Good Andrew Motion's first work of biography won a Somerset Maugham Award in 1987. "A biographical triumph". (Observer). "The story of the three Lamberts is as cruel and horrifying as any Greek tragedy...Its portrayal of the way in which the Lamberts instinctively yet unintentionally assisted in the destruction of their own offspring makes for truly compulsive reading". (Harpers and Queen). "Motion's project is not just to tell the story of passing generations, which he does very readably and well, but necessarily also to describe and evaluate aspects of English culture - revivalist painting, classical music in the Twenties and Thirties, the foundation of a native ballet, pop music in the Sixties - which he does with considerable confidence and resource".

Shanghai Tango: A Memoir, Jin Xing
8 Jin Xing Shanghai Tango: A Memoir
Atlantic Books 234904 London 2008 1843546337 / 9781843546337 Softcover Very Good Condition At the age of nine, Jin Xing entered a military academy. He knew that he had been born to dance and, in Mao's China, it was the army that provided the best training. His exceptional talent was soon recognised; by the time he was eighteen, he was regarded as the best principal dancer in China. He won a scholarship to study in the United States where he discovered a new world of contemporary dance, and made both a new identity and a decision that was to change his life - and would shake the whole of China: Jin Xing underwent a sex-change. He became a woman - and then a mother.The incredible adventure of this solider with a young girl's heart was suppressed by Chinese authorities for years, but now Jin Xing can finally tell her story. From the regimented world of the Red Army, to Europe's most elegant boulevards; from the small Manchurian village of her birth, to the dizzying excess of New York; Jin Xing's story has all the drama and energy of a classic ballet - and a happy ending. 195 pages.
