In the summer of 1968, Rose sets off for the United States from Kentish Town; in her suitcase a polka-dot dress and a one-way ticket. Together with the sinister man known only as Washington Harold, she goes in search of the charismatic and elusive Dr Wheeler - the man Rose credits with rescuing her from a terrible childhood, and against whom Harold nurses a silent grudge. As the odd couple journey across an America on the brink of paranoid disintegration, their journey mirrors that of Robert Kennedy's presidential campaign. As they draw ever closer to the elusive Dr Wheeler, one hot day in June at the Ambassador Hotel in LA, their search finally reaches its terrible climax.

Beryl Bainbridge is one of Britain's major post-war novelists. This study analyses Bainbridge's work in relation to some of the pressing debates in post-war literary studies. It frames Bainbridge's work within her life and times, describing her unique approach to fictionalising her own past and Britain's more distant historical past. Topics covered include Bainbridge's vexed relationship with feminism; her approach to comedy; her treatment of autobiography; her interest in myth-making and national tragedy; and her un-theorised yet subtly postmodernist views about history, fiction and memory. With generous reference to Bainbridge's peers, her literary influences and those influenced by her work, Marsh identifies the major phases of Bainbridge's career, contextualising each with material from Bainbridge's journalism, essays interviews and unpublished papers. Suitable or all readers of Bainbridge's novels and including suggestions for further reading, Marsh's book combines awareness of recent literary criticism and theory with accessible, contextualised readings.

"A haunting and evocative history of British empire, told through one woman's family story 'Where are you from?' Hazel Carby was continually asked as a girl, at a time when being Black and being British was understood to be an impossibility. To answer that question properly, eminent scholar Hazel Carby finds she needs to trace not just the family history of her Jamaican father and her Welsh mother, but to untangle knots the British Empire created across the Atlantic. Tracing the skeins of this knotted past through the method of 'autohistory,' Imperial Intimacies charts empire's violent interweaving of lives and states, Jamaica and Britain, capital and bodies, public language and private feeling. In so doing, Carby will find herself reckoning with what she can tell, what she can remember, and what she can bear to know"

"The telephone rings persistently through the October night and Mark D'Andor sits drinking in his house high over the lush hills of Hollywood. D'Andor, once a rich and powerful criminal lawyer, now on the skids, prefers to remain with his bourbon and his memories of the past -- but at last he struggles to the phone. The call throws Mark into events which erupt in one of the most sensational courtroom dramas ... and confront him with the greatest challenge of his career. For he alone is to conduct the defense of a man accused of the most terrible crime imaginable. Archibald Forbes, the fat man known as The Feeb, America's most successful movie comic, beloved by millions and loathed by some few -- including Mark D'Andor -- [is accused of murdering] Muffin Naismith, a lovely and frivolous starlet and Mark's former mistress. Is her death the result of a grotesque accident or a psychotic sexual assault?"--Jacket.
