5.0 out of 5 stars Such an enjoyable read 7 Dec 2010
By Emma
Format:Kindle Edition
I was lucky to read Gym's book fresh from the printer and I so enjoyed zigzagging with her, and following her adventures. Hopping from 60's London to the Bolshoi or a recent Cannes Festival, where she worked as a set decorator.
There is a wonderful zest for life in her stories and I shut my book, feeling both happy and a bit nostalgic for wanting to read more

Intriguing short stories....flashing back to the hip 60's. An era I barely know but having read the book, have now zigzagged my way through fashionable, arty London to some exciting chapters and colourful adventures in Russia,Italy,Wales,Poland and Spain. Look forward to a sequel or even a 'movie'.
