Ready, steady, go! : the smashing rise and giddy fall of Swinging London by Shawn Levy( Book )
12 editions published between 2002 and 2013 in English and held by 517 libraries worldwide
"In Ready Steady, Go! Shawn Levy captures the spirit of the sixties in all its exuberance. A portrait of London from roughly 1961 to 1969, it chronicles the explosion of creativity - in art, music and fashion - and the revolutions - sexual, social and political - that reshaped the world. Levy deftly blends the enthusiasm of a fan, the discerning eye of a social critic and a historian's objectivity as he re-creates the hectic pace and daring experimentation of the times - from the utter transformation of rock 'n' roll by the Beatles and the Rolling Stones, to the new aesthetics introduced by fashion designers like Mary Quant, haircutters like Vidal Sassoon, photographers like David Bailey, actors like Michael Caine and Terence Stamp and filmmakers like Richard Lester and Nicolas Roeg, to the wild clothing shops and cutting-edge clubs that made Carnaby Street and King's Road the hippest thoroughfares in the world."--Jacket
The last playboy : the high life of Porfirio Rubirosa by Shawn Levy( Book )
6 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 517 libraries worldwide
Porfirio Rubirosa was the last great playboy: a symbol of powerful masculinity, ubiquity, and easy-come-easy-go money. He had an eye for beautiful women, particularly when they came with great wealth: he managed to marry two of the richest women on the planet. Rumor had him bedding hundreds of others, including Christina Onassis, Eva Perón, and Zsa Zsa Gabor. But he was a man's man, too, chumming around with the likes of Joe Kennedy, Frank Sinatra, Oleg Cassini, Aly Khan, and King Farouk. When above-board income was scarce, he diverted himself with jewel-thievery, shadowy diplomatic errands, and any other illicit scam that came his way. Whatever legitimate power he wielded came to him from Rafael Trujillo, one of the most power-mad dictators the New World has ever seen. When Rubi died at the age of 56, wrapping his sports car around a tree, an era went with him.--From publisher description
