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.

Blown Away - The Rolling Stones and the Death of The Sixties, A.E. Hotchner
6 A.E. Hotchner Blown Away - The Rolling Stones and the Death of The Sixties
Simon & Schuster 233568 USA 1990 First Edition 0671693166 / 9780671693169 Hardcover Very Good Condition Very Good A revelation about the Rolling Stones and their times, based on archives of material, originally amassed by Bill Wyman. Hotchner explores the Stones' humble musical beginnings in London and traces their lives and times to a horrific climax in 1969 - a year when Brian Jones was found dead at the bottom of his swimming pool, when Charles Manson perpetrated a series of gruesome murders, when Janis Joplin and Jimi Hendrix died of overdoses and when the Hells Angels brutally murdered a man at Altamount while the Stones played on. The author looks beyond to the consolidation of their reputation as the definitive rock group of their decade. The book also presents the real truth about their notorious sex lives, exorbitant drug habits and explosive creativity. Finally, Hotchner unravels the mystery of Brian Jones' death and exposes the turmoil within the rock group that led to a blood struggle in the final days of Jones' life. The author also wrote "Papa Hemingway", "Doris Day" and "Sophia". 349 pages. Light browning to page edges. Illustrated with black and white photographs. Quantity Available: 1.

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.

The Beatles: From The Cavern to the Rooftop, Allan Kozinn
14 Allan Kozinn The Beatles: From The Cavern to the Rooftop
Phaidon Press 234014 Great Britain 2012 Reprint 071485946X / 9780714859460 Softcover Very Good Condition The Beatles follows the extraordinary development of four self-taught musicians from Liverpool, from their beginnings, until the break-up in 1970. This biography sets the group's evolution against the backdrop of a popular culture explosion in the 1960s. A serious study of the Beatles' music is expanded here by consideration not only of the group's commercially released disks but also of rare working tapes which both shed light on the compositional process and reveal how many of their milestone recordings took shape in the studio. It also examines why the innovative music of the Beatles - created, at least initially, as ephemera - has remained so durable. 264 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram.

"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".
