Florence Foster Jenkins; Theinspiring Story Of the Worldl's Worst Singer

By Martin, Nicholas & Rees, Jasper

New York: St. Martin's Griffin, 2016 "People may say that I couldn't sing. But no one can say that I didn't sing." Despite lacking pitch, rhythm or tone, Florence Foster Jenkins became one of America's best-known sopranos, celebrated for her unique recordings and her sell-out concert at Carnegie Hall. Born in 1868 to wealthy Pennsylvanian parents, Florence was a talented young pianist but her life was thrown into turmoil when she eloped with Frank Jenkins, a man twice her age. The marriage proved a disaster and, in order to survive, Florence was forced to abandon her dreams of a musical career and teach the piano. Then her father died in 1909 and, newly installed in New York, she used a considerable inheritance to fund her passion. She set up a prestigious amateur music club and began staging operas. Aided by her English common-law husband, St Clair Bayfield, she worked tirelessly to support the city's musical life. Many young singers owed their start to Florence, but she too yearned to perform and began giving regular recitals that quickly attracted a cult following. And yet nothing could prepare the world for the astonishing climax of her career when, at the age of seventy-six, she performed at the most hallowed concert hall in America. In Florence Foster Jenkins, Nicholas Martin and Jasper Rees tell her extraordinary story, which inspired the film starring Meryl Streep and Hugh Grant, and directed by Stephen Frears. 1st US Edition.. Softcover. As New.

Ill Met By Moonlight

By Moss,W.Stanley

London: Buchan & Enright, 1985 On 26 April 1944, Generalmajor Karl Kreipe, commanding the German forces occupying Crete, left H Q at Heraklion for his perisonal quarters. He never arrived. Instead, he was driven past 24 of his own guard posts, acknowledging the sentries'salutes while a hidden British officer pressed a gun into his side. 20 days later Kreipe and his chief abductors - Major Patrick Leigh-Fermor and the author - reached British-held Cairo. One of the finest true adventure stories of the last war, this justly famous book describes the secret landings, the plan, the stalking and victim. Moss's sharp eye brings to life the national characteristics of thw German solider, the British officer, and the Cretan andarte - characteristics which often showed themselves all too strongly during the day of "monotony, and sweat, and thirst, and sickening fear' in the mountains, hiding from a huge Nazi manhunt. The tale (based on Moss's own diaries) is told with humour and tolerance and, the fear and discomfort forgotten, is today remembered as one of romantic valour. The exploit earned even the Germans' grudging admiration, and showed them that their most exalted commanders were not safe from death or capture. 192p. illus. Withdrawn from the Royal Canadian Military Institute, Ex-Library with usual marks. Solidly rebound with original paper wraps laminated to boards.. Reprint.. Rebound Copy. Very Good. Ex-Library.
