Kate Remembered, A. Scott Berg
5 A. Scott Berg Kate Remembered
G.P. Putnam's Sons 233937 USA 2003 0399151648 / 9780399151644 Hardcover Near Fine Condition For more than twenty years, Katharine Hepburn imparted many of the details of her life to me suggesting that I weave them into a book - one that would appear upon her death. Sad to say, the time has come to publish that book. But I find comfort in knowing she lived a very rich 96 years; and I have tried my best to honour her wish of making the book as true to her spirit as possible - as inspiring, as loving and as fun.' Scott Berg KATE REMEMBERED is a loving tribute and a tender farewell that reveals an unusual relationship in a unique life, one fully lived - and largely according to Katharine Hepburn's own rules. More importantly, it sets down many of the stories of that life as she saw them, full of sentiments she felt should not be made public until after her death. Ultimately, this book is not only a story of the poignant final twenty years in which Scott Berg knew Katharine Hepburn, but also a tale of a great theatrical personality and the better part of the century that was the stage for her distinguished life. 370 pages. Illustrated with black and white photographs. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 1-2 kilos. Category: Biography; Biography & Autobiography; ISBN: 0399151648. ISBN/EAN: 9780399151644.

6 Adam Shand Big Shots - Carl Williams & The Gangland Murders - The Inside Story, Completely Revised
Viking 228149 Australia 2010 0670075043 / 9780670075041 Trade Paperback Near Fine Condition In 2003, Adam Shand naively set out to unravel Melbourne's bloody gangland wars. A few months' research, a guaranteed cover story. But his foray into the underworld took him deeper than that. He became embroiled in a complex world where feuds raged between rival families, and where a new generation was clashing with the criminal Establishment. Before long, he found himself counted as a friend by those who sometimes ended friendships with a hail of bullets. In this fully updated edition, taking in the events of 2010, including the murder of Carl Williams, Big Shots takes the reader into the heart of the city's multibillion-dollar 'disorganised crime' scene, as Shand meets the key figures and suspects, including Carl and Roberta Williams, Mick Gatto and many others. He discovers the human drama behind the brutal slayings that were splashed across the front pages, and in the process comes to questions his objectivity 416 pages.

"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".

19 Anne Pender One Man Show: The Stages of Barry Humphries
ABC Books 233233 Australia 2010 0733325912 / 9780733325915 Trade Paperback Very Good Condition A compelling, incisive and thorougly entertaining biography of comic genius Barry Humphries Barry Humphries is perhaps the greatest comic genius of our age. Satirist, comedian and burlesque entertainer, he enthrals audiences across the globe. As housewife megastar Edna Everage, he savages-and enchants-all in his path. His shambolic diplomat, Les Patterson, shocks and titillates, while Sandy Stone, poignant chronicler of suburbia, can bring audiences to tears. Yet Humphries, the man, remains an enigma. In his fifty years performing, he has avoided scrutiny of his true self-and the influences that help shape his characters. ONE MAN SHOW examines the life, and the aspirations, of this enormously talented artist. From his youthful pranks on the staid streets of Melbourne, the phenomenon that was Barry Mackenzie, and the dark years of alcoholism, through to his successes on television and Broadway, this finely drawn portrait reveals the truth of Humphries' world. It is the definitive story of a mysterious individual and his theatrical magic. 452 pages. Light foxing to endpapers and page edges. Previous owners name on front endpaper. Illustrated with colour and black and white photographs. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 1-2 kilos. Category: Biography; Biography & Autobiography; ISBN/EAN: 9780733325915.

That Woman: The Life of Wallis Simpson, Duchess of Windsor, Anne Sebba
20 Anne Sebba That Woman: The Life of Wallis Simpson, Duchess of Windsor
Phoenix 233507 Great Britain 2012 0753827395 / 9780753827390 Softcover Near Fine Condition Bestselling biography of the enduringly fascinating Wallis SimpsonOne of Britain's most distinguished biographers turns her focus on one of the most vilified women of the twentieth century. Historian Anne Sebba has written the first full biography by a woman of Wallis Simpson, Duchess of Windsor. 'That woman', as she was referred to by the Queen Mother, became a hate figure for ensnaring a British king and destabilising the monarchy. Neither beautiful nor brilliant, she nevertheless became one of the most talked-about women of her generation, and she inspired such deep love and adoration in Edward VIII that he gave up a throne and an empire for her. Wallis lived by her wit and her wits, while both her apparent and alleged moral transgressions added to her aura and dazzle. Based on new archives and material only recently made available, this scrupulously researched biography sheds new light on the character and motivations of a powerful, charismatic and complex woman. 344 pages. Illustrated with black and white photographs. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram. Category: Biography; Biography & Autobiography; Inscribed by Author. ISBN/EAN: 9780753827390.
