Über diesen Titel

Inhaltsangabe:

The love affair between British speed king Donald Campbell and vivacious singer Tonia Bern was one of the great romances of the 20th century. But passion turned to tragedy with the dramatic death of Campbell on Lake Coniston in January 1967, as he attempted to break the world water speed record in his famous jet boat, Bluebird. In this portrait of her love affair and marriage to Campbell, Tonia tells the inside story of her heady lifestyle with Britain's national land and water speed hero. The collision between the two worlds of 1960s "jet-set" and "show-biz" promised a fast and furious ride, but their volcanic marriage and the pressures of trying to combine two high-profile careers sometimes took their toll on the relationship. Writing soon after Donald's death, Tonia turned her tremendous sense of personal loss into a vivid evocation of what it was really like to be married to a man with a great lust for love-making and high-speed record-breaking. But it has taken her until now to choose to tell the whole story.

Anbieterinformationen

BookLovers of Bath is based in the rural idyll of Peasedown St. John in Somerset (God's Own Country) in the south west of England and actually very nearly in Bath. After 20 years of being “internet only” I have now opened a shop, Fact or Fable, in the premises of our now-closed Post Office. With over 20,000 books in stock and another 5,000 or so in the shop I run an old-fashioned book business with every book listed, graded, picked, packed and posted by my own fair hand… abetted by my Jack Russells who are really, not, helpful.
