Rosalind Franklin : the dark lady of DNA by Brenda Maddox ( Book )
26 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,267 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In March 1953, Maurice Wilkins of King's College, London, announced the departure of his obstructive colleague Rosalind Franklin to rival Cavendish Laboratory scientist Francis Crick. But it was too late. Franklin's unpublished data and crucial photograph of DNA had already been seen by her competitors at the Cambridge University lab. With the aid of these, plus their own knowledge, Watson and Crick discovered the structure of the molecule that genes are composed of--DNA, the secret of life. This is a powerful story of a remarkable simpleminded, forthright and tempestuous young woman who, at the age of fifteen, decided she was going to be a scientist, but who was airbrushed out of the greatest scientific discovery of the twentieth century

D.H. Lawrence, the story of a marriage by Brenda Maddox ( Book )
8 editions published between 1994 and 1996 in English and held by 1,223 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Maddox presents a richly detailed and startlingly new portrait of D. H. Lawrence: not the bearded prophet with the baleful eye, not the sickly and self-absorbed sexual outlaw, but a vulnerable, sensitive Lawrence, a hilarious mimic, a lover of nature, an inspired teacher, a brilliant journalist, an ecological visionary, and above all - as he saw himself - a married man." "The prize-winning author of Nora (Mrs. James Joyce) examines Lawrence's perplexing, restless life through the greatest contradiction in it - his marriage to Frieda, a woman even more defiant of conventional morality than he was. Theirs was a mismatch made in heaven, a marriage with infidelities on both sides, verbal taunts and physical abuse, separations, and the strains of Lawrence's long struggle with tuberculosis. Yet her determined influence on his life and work cannot be overestimated, and they remained together until his bitter, tragic death."--BOOK JACKET

Nora : a biography of Nora Joyce by Brenda Maddox ( Book )
22 editions published between 1988 and 2000 in English and held by 566 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Nora was twenty years old and penniless when she eloped from Ireland with Joyce, a man of brilliant promise but few accomplishments whom she'd known but three months. She remained with him until his death thirty-seven years later, bearing him two children, governing a succession of unruly households in Trieste, Paris, and Zurich, holding him and the family together through the force of her own formidable pluck. Most importantly for Joyce's work, Nora served as his "portable Ireland," his living link to the homeland he used as the basis for his masterpieces

12 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 370 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Who is Margaret Thatcher? Her influence on politics is well documented - not least by Lady Thatcher herself. What kind of person was she that she could overcome her background, the snobbery of Oxford University and then of the Conservative Party? Brenda Maddox shows how the Iron Lady created herself, with the assistance of both parents and her husband. She traces the life of the grocer's daughter from Grantham who became the most successful Conservative Prime Minister of the twentieth century. Unprecedented access to people who have known Margaret Thatcher throughout her life (some who have never spoken before) enables the author to tell the personal story of a public life

George Eliot in love by Brenda Maddox ( Book )
5 editions published in 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 256 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
George Eliot is one of the most celebrated novelists in history. Her books, including Middlemarch, Daniel Deronda, and Adam Bede, are as appreciated now as they were in the nineteenth century. Yet her nonconformist and captivating personal life-a compelling story in itself-is not well known. Ridiculed as an ugly duckling, Eliot violated strict social codes by living with a married man for most of her adult life. Soon after he died, she married a much younger man who attempted suicide during their honeymoon. The obstacles Eliot overcame in her life informed her work and have made her legacy an enduring one. Brenda Maddox brings her lively style to bear on the intersection of Eliot's life and novels. She delves into the human side of this larger-than-life figure, revealing the pleasure and pain behind the intellectual's public face. The result is a deeply personal biography that sheds new light on a woman who lived life on her own terms and altered the literary landscape in the process

Freud's wizard : the enigma of Ernest Jones by Brenda Maddox ( Book )
5 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 183 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Ernest Jones was one of the shapers of the twentieth century. He established psychoanalysis in Britain and wote gripping popular works such as Hamelet and the Oedipus Complex and On the Nightmare, which made Freudian theory available to the likes of Sir Lawrence Olivier and Sylvia Plath. He presided over the translation of Freud's work into English and, in 1938, daringly flew to Vienna to rescue Freud from the Nazi threat. In the 1950s he caped his life's achievement by writing the three-volume biography of Freud that became an international bestseller and defined psychoanalysis for future generations. Biographer Brenda Maddox uncovers the gripping drama of the life of this intrepid Welshman. She investigates his early troubles with the law, his conversion to psychoanalyssi, his long friendship with Freud-expressed in 671 letters-and even his peculiar passion for figure skating
