Lord Beaverbrook : a life by Anne Chisholm( Book )

8 editions published between 1992 and 1993 in English and Undetermined and held by 407 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"I am the victim of the Furies. On the rock-bound coast of New Brunswick the waves break incessantly. Every now and then comes a particularly dangerous wave smashing viciously into the rock. It is called 'The Rage.' That's me." "When Max Aitken, Lord Beaverbrook, wrote these words to Winston Churchill at the height of World War II he was sixty-two, the second most powerful man in the kingdom and (at least in his own eyes) a potential prime minister himself. As Fleet Street's most dynamic and inventive press baron, as cabinet minister, as compulsive behind-the-scenes manipulator, he had already been playing a central role in British public life for three decades, and would continue to do so until his death in 1964. Describing himself as a force of nature was pure Beaverbrook; but no one who knew him would be likely to deny the accuracy of the description."

Carrington's letters by Dora de Houghton Carrington( Book )

5 editions published between 2017 and 2019 in English and held by 78 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dora Carrington was considered an outsider to Bloomsbury, but she lived right at its heart. For over a decade she was the companion of gay writer Lytton Strachey, and killed herself, stricken without him, when he died in 1932. She was also a prolific and exuberant correspondent. Carrington was not consciously a pioneer or a feminist, but in her determination to live life according to her own nature, she fought battles that remain familiar and urgent today. She was friends with the greatest minds of the day and her correspondence stars a roster of fascinating characters - Virginia Woolf, Vanessa Bell, Rosamund Lehmann, Maynard Keynes to name but a few. 'Carrington's Letters' introduces the maverick artist and electric personality to a new generation with exclusive correspondence never before published

Carrington's letters. Her art, her loves, her friendships by Dora de Houghton Carrington( Book )

2 editions published between 2017 and 2019 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dora Carrington was considered an outsider to Bloomsbury, but she lived right at its heart. Known only by her surname, she was the star of her year at the Slade School of Fine Art, but never achieved the fame her early career promised. For over a decade she was the companion of homosexual writer Lytton Strachey, and killed herself, stricken without him, when he died in 1932. She was also a prolific and exuberant correspondent.0Carrington was not consciously a pioneer or a feminist, but in her determination to live life according to her own nature - especially in relation to her work, her passionate friendships and her fluid attitude to sex, gender and sexuality - she fought battles that remain familiar and urgent today. She was friends with the greatest minds of the day and her correspondence stars a roster of fascinating characters - Virginia Woolf, Vanessa Bell, Rosamund Lehmann, Maynard Keynes to name but a few.0Carrington's Letters introduces the maverick artist and compelling personality to a new generation for the first time with fresh correspondence never before published. Unmediated, passionate, startlingly honest and very playful, reading Carrington's letters is like having her whisper in your ear and embrace you gleefully
