Byron, Shelley, Mary Shelley (who wrote "Frankenstein" in that year) and Claire Clairmont (Mary's step-sister, pregnant with Byron's child) were neighbours across the shores of Lake Geneva. Byron had just fled from England following the scandal surrounding his separation from his wife and rumours of incest with his half-sister, Augusta Leigh. This book charts the friendship between the flamboyant Byron and the youthful Shelley's and their friends and hangers-on, through Italy and England, through personal tragedies and passions, sex and scandal, wit and heartbreak - all accompanied by a prodigious and precocious outpouring of brilliant poetry which echoed the creative relationship between Byron and the Shelley's, and their shared view of the world, its follies and its hypocrisies.  £15.00

Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis was and is an icon for women. Beautiful, exquisitely dressed, cultivated, gracious, a little mysterious and almost regal, she personifies the way we would like all our world leaders' wives to be. Sarah Bradford paints an extraordinary portrait of a woman riddled with contradictions: kind, considerate, proud, loyal and loving, yet also supremely selfish, manipulative and greedy. Drawing on remarkable new testimony from those closest to Jackie, "America's Queen" follows her from her rigid, bleak childhood to the glorious glamour and complication of life as Kennedy's wife, to the even more glamorous but ultimately poisonous marriage to Onassis, to the final serenity of her years as a New York publishing editor. The secrets of Onassis's will, Jackie's affairs, her extraordinary spending habits, her treachery to old friends - all of these are revealed together with her public life as the ultimate trophy wife.  £14.00

ISBN: 0-684-19350-7. From Publishers Weekly Kaiser served in various government posts including assistant secretary of Labor under Truman, ambassador to Senegal under Kennedy, and ambassador to Hungary and Austria under Carter. Elegantly written and anecdotal, his memoir is enjoyable. Especially noteworthy: his account of his role in returning to the Hungarian people the Crown of St. Stephen, the treasured thousand-year symbol of their national identity, which had been stored at Fort Knox since the end of the war; and his close relationship with Chancellor Bruno Kreisky at a time when Austria was just beginning to confront the realities of its wartime relationship with the Nazis. Kaiser is eloquent in his denunciation of the American government's failure to provide the State Department with the resources to perform its role as the first line of national defence (he points out that State has the smallest budget of any Cabinet department, less than 1% of the Defence Department's). A profound admirer of Woodrow Wilson, he argues that what the country needs most right now is a fresh application of the progressive legacy initiated by the president, and a willingness to manage government imaginatively and creatively. Copyright 1992 Reed Business Information, Inc. From Library Journal Wilsonian idealism and internationalism have taken quite a beating as this century has lurched from Sarajevo 1914 to Sarajevo 1992. But its ideology remains alive and well in Kaiser's lively account of his remarkable diplomatic career. Born in Brooklyn, educated at the University of Wisconsin and as a Rhodes scholar at Oxford, Kaiser served in the U.S. diplomatic corps during the post-war presidencies of Truman, Kennedy, Johnson, and Carter.  £15.00

[12244] Klein, Carole. Doris Lessing: a Biography. London: Gerald Duckworth & Co. Ltd, 2000. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Hardback. Very Good / Very Good. ISBN: 0-7156-2951-4. Throughout her life, Doris Lessing broke the rules in both her personal life and within the accepted mores of literature. A trailblazer of the women's movement and an early experimenter with drugs, she gained notoriety in the sixties with her first novel "The Grass is Singing", and subsequently with her explosive "Golden Notebook" and the "Children of Violence" series. At the age of eighty she remains part of the avant garde. Doris Lessing has always resisted appointing an official biographer. In this unofficial biography, Carole Klein, separates fact from the fiction with which Dories Lessing has surrounded herself. Using the private correspondence between Lessing, her long-standing editor Tobert Gottlieb and her agent John Cushman, she reveals a complex woman who is both self-assured and remarkably fragile. Beginning with Lessing's birth in Persia to a cold and spiteful mother, Carole Klein follows Lessing through her many reincarnations: an isolated childhood in Africa, lonely years at a distant boarding school, a rebellious and promiscuous young adulthood, years at a menial job as a telephone operator, a brief marriage, motherhood, her flight from her husband and children, her political activism, fame and, always, her writing. Carole Klein attempts to reveal the spirit of a woman who was never afraid to challenge the status quo, who always sought a deeper truth, ending up losing the battle with her own identity.  £15.00

Tragically, in the eleventh round, Watson caught his neck on the back of the ropes after taking an uppercut from Eubank. He collapsed and suffered serious brain damage which left him paralysed. After years of intensive therapy, and with the same determination and strength of spirit that he showed in the ring, Michael Watson has made a remarkable recovery and won the biggest fight of all - the fight for his life. Michael Watson was, is, and always will be the People's Champion.  £6.00

Greek traders dominate the Eastern Mediterranean, from Italy and Carthage in the west to the Levant in the east. The great Alexander is thirteen years dead, and his feuding generals gaze covetously at one another's portions of empire. Amidst mounting tension, the trading city of Rhodes is prosperous - and studiedly neutral. There in Rhodes, Menedemos is a young, daring sea captain; scholarly, reserved Sostratos is his cousin. Their fathers jointly own a merchant galley, the Aphrodite, and they expect Menedemos and Sostratos to use it to enrich their families. But now the cousins plan their largest, most audacious trading voyage yet, which will take them from the shores of Asia Minor all the way to the coasts of faraway Italy, and to confrontations with the barbarians of an obscure town called "Rome." Each of them has strengths the other lacks. Now, in the troubled waters off of Sicily, they face a chance at untold riches...if they can evade the massed strength of the Carthaginian fleet.  £15.00
