Anything goes : a biography of the roaring twenties by Lucy Moore( Book )
11 editions published between 2008 and 2014 in English and held by 1,029 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
An exhilarating portrait of the era of jazz, glamour, and gangsters. The glitter of 1920s America was seductive, from flappers and wild all-night parties to the birth of Hollywood and a glamorous gangster-led crime scene flourishing under Prohibition. But the period was also punctuated by momentous events--the political show trials of Sacco and Vanzetti, the huge Ku Klux Klan march down Washington DC's Pennsylvania Avenue--and it produced a dizzying array of writers, musicians, and film stars, from F. Scott Fitzgerald to Bessie Smith and Charlie Chaplin. Historian Lucy Moore interweaves the stories of the compelling people and events that characterized the decade to produce a portrait of the Jazz Age, revealing an epoch of passion and change--an age, she observes, not unlike our own.--From publisher description

Con men and cutpurses : scenes from the Hogarthian underworld by Lucy Moore( Book )
14 editions published between 2000 and 2004 in English and held by 330 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Crime flourished in eighteenth-century England, thanks to the conspicuous wealth of the upper classes and the lack of any kind of police force. Many people, bound by a life of exhausting poverty, saw highwaymen, thieves, pirates and prostitutes as glamorous rebels. When Jack Sheppard, burglar, daring escapee and idol of the London mob, eventually met his end, weeping girls dressed in white lined the route to Tyburn." "This enthralling collection of memoirs, newspaper reports, satires and ballads takes us deep into this murky world. From ingenious pickpocket Jenny Diver to Machiavellian thief-taker Jonathan Wild, we come face to face with the Hogarthian characters who believed a short life of 'plenty, satiety, pleasure and ease, liberty and power' was well worth the price of 'a sour look or two at choking'."--Jacket
Maharanis : the lives and times of three generations of Indian princesses by Lucy Moore( Book )
7 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 301 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In Maharanis Lucy Moore recreates the lives of four women: two grandmothers, a daughter and a granddaughter, all of them princesses of the royal courts of India." "Chimnabai, Maharani of Baroda, was a proud nationalist and one of the founders of the women's movement in India. Her husband famously snubbed the king of England during the Coronation Durbar of 1911." "Sunity came from a progressive Bengali family but was married as a teenage bride to the glamorous, Anglophile Maharaja of Cooch Behar. She was the first maharani to visit Britain for Queen Victoria's Golden Jubilee in 1887." "Indira, Chimnabai's daughter dared to reject the marriage her parents had arranged for her and eloped with Cooch Behar's son, Jit, uniting the two dynasties. A renowned beauty, she combined her duties as Regent of Cooch Behar with a sensational social life in Europe. Later she became a matriarch almost as formidable as her mother." "And Ayesha, daughter of Indira and Jit, married the Maharaja of Jaipur, a dashing polo player, in 1940. After Independence she entered politics and made her name as an impassioned critic of the corrupt government of Indira Gandhi." "In a narrative set in exotic palaces on the subcontinent as well as the drawing rooms of Europe, this story spans 150 years. Full of spirit and courage, each maharani changed the world she lived in, shaping the way modern Indian women define themselves. Through their story Lucy Moore creates an intimate portrait of a nation during an era of great change - the rise and fall of the Raj and India's long road to Independence and beyond."--BOOK JACKET
Nijinsky by Lucy Moore( Book )
10 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 216 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The first major biography for forty years tells the tragic story of ballet's great revolutionary, Nijinsky. 'He achieves the miraculous, ' the sculptor Auguste Rodin wrote of Vaslav Nijinsky. He embodies all the beauty of classical frescoes and statues. Like so many since, Rodin recognised that in Nijinsky classical ballet had one of the greatest and most original artists of the twentieth century, in any genre. And his life is the stuff of legends: a story of great beauty and great tragedy. Immersed in the world of dance from his childhood, he found his natural home in the Imperial Theatre and the Ballets Russe, and a powerful sponsor in Sergei Diaghilev - until a dramatic and public failure ended his career and set him on a route to madness. As a dancer, he was acclaimed as godlike for his extraordinary grace and elevation, but the opening of Stravinsky's The Rite of Spring saw furious brawls between admirers of his radically unballetic choreography and horrified traditionalists. Though 2013 marks the Rite's centenary, Nijinsky's story has lost none of its power to shock, fascinate and move. Adored and reviled in his lifetime, his phenomenal talent was shadowed by schizophrenia and an intense but destructive relationship with his lover, Diaghilev. In the first biography for forty years, this book examines a career defined by two forces - inspired performance and an equally headline-grabbing talent for controversy
