Knowing Mandela
Knowing Mandela
by John Carlin
Edition: Hardcover
Price: 10.49

5.0 out of 5 stars A great account of a deep friendship., 7 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Knowing Mandela (Hardcover)
Carlin's approach, a mixture of great respect and affection, gives a clear picture of Mandela the Man, just as much as Mandela the Hero. This is a factual but also moving account of a long and affecting friendship over many years.

All Change (Cazalet Chronicles)
All Change (Cazalet Chronicles)
by Elizabeth Jane Howard
Edition: Paperback
Price: 3.85

5.0 out of 5 stars The final curtain, 7 May 2014

The last volume of Howard's Cazalet novels is a fitting end to her long career. The only disappointment is to realize that this really is it - there will be no more.

by Silvano Levy
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant summary of Desmond Morris's contribution to Surrealism., 7 May 2014

Sylvano Levy's clarity of thought and writing makes it a pleasure to read his exposition on Desmond Morris, his career as a zoologist and parallel career as a painter, and his approach to life.

Visiting Picasso: The Notebooks and Letters of Roland Penrose
by Pablo Picasso
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars A scholarly and fascinating interpretation of Roland Penrose's notebooks and letters., 6 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Elizabeth Cowling has achieved a tour de force with this work. I would recommend it to all readers equally, academic and/or general. With its easy style and great content, the book makes a great read at any level - a wonderful insight into the art world before, during and after the Second World War.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another superb performance by Janina Fialkowska, 1 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Chopin Recital 2 (Audio CD)
This new recording by Janina demonstrates yet again her great gifts and further emphasizes her huge courage in overcoming a cancerous tumour in her arm to return to the top of her profession. Janina's connection with Chopin is palpable. This is a magisterial recording and one to be treasured.

by Jean de Brunhoff
Edition: Hardcover
Price: 20.39

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best of Babar, 14 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great to have a compendium of five good Babar stories in one, with their magical illustrations as well as the text. A good spread of story themes, too, which will keep both children and parent readers happy! The tough, hard-wearing case in which to keep the book makes it a long-lasting present which will be much loved.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sparkling Chopin, 9 Jan 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Chopin: Works for Piano (Audio CD)
What a joy to have the pleasure of a further recital by this talented pianist, already well-known for her interpretation of Chopin. For those of us who are already enthusiastic followers of her career, this is further confirmation of her great gift.
