En 1973, Robert Sutherland est invité à seconder Maria Callas pour préparer son grand retour, attendu depuis des années. Jamais il n'aurait imaginé qu'il resterait avec elle jusqu'à sa mort, l'accompagnant pendant quinze mois tumultueux. Il apprendra alors à connaître une femme complexe , tout à la fois diva, femme fragile et amie fidèle. La Callas vivait alors une période difficile : Onassis, son amant durant neuf ans, venait d'épouser Jacqueline Kennedy. Durant tout ce temps, elle ne chantera presque pas. Le retour sur scène du ténor Giuseppe di Stefano, avec lequel elle s'était produite à ses débuts, son compagnon d'alors, lui apparaît comme le seul remède possible - à la fois artistique et sentimental. Ce ne fut qu'une énième déception. Croyant enfin trouver l'amour, Maria est encore une fois délaissée, et sa notoriété publique abîmée. La Callas fit de Robert Sutherland son confident, se livrant sur son enfance, ses parents, Onassis et la musique. Ce témoignage, donnant à voir la diva dans son intimité, la rend plus humaine et proche de nous.

This book was written by Mollie Whiteoak over a number of years for the enjoyment of her family, and gives an account of her life and her many travels. It began as a shorter work, but as time went on it was amended and added to many times, and grew far beyond the original plan, covering the years between the beginning of the war in 1939 up to near the end of the 20th century.<br /><br />Mollie had considered publishing the book eventually, in aid of charity, and was still working on edits at the time of her departure on her final journey.<br /><br />As her daughter I have attempted to pull the whole story together for publication, so please blame any remaining errors and typos on me.<br /><br />This first edition was published on 16th August 2017.<br /><br />All profits from the sale of this book will be donated to Cancer Research.

By the time the British surrendered to the Japanese in February 1942 at the fall Singapore, nearly all white civilians had left Malaya. One remarkable exception to the white flight was Nona Baker, ‘a parson’s youngest daughter’ from Dunstable, Bedfordshire. Nona Baker and her brother, Vin, general manager of Sungei Lembing tin mine in Pahang, stayed behind in the Malayan jungle and were later adopted by Chinese guerrillas (who, after World War Two, would become the Communist terrorists of the Malayan Emergency). Against all odds, this remarkable, brave young woman, known as Pai Naa (White Nona), remained in the jungle for three years, avoiding capture by the Japanese and betrayal by spies before being delivered safely into the care of war hero Freddie Spencer Chapman. With hair cut short Nona Baker worked alongside the men while under constant threat of discovery and certain death, and with the men she suffered from malaria, dysentery, beriberi, hunger and, above all, fear.

<b>“In the past, for reasons I try to explain, I’ve often felt I had to be careful in public, like I was up on a wire without a net. Now I’m letting my guard down.”</b><b> —Hillary Rodham Clinton, from the introduction of <i>What Happened</i></b><BR><BR>For the first time, Hillary Rodham Clinton reveals what she was thinking and feeling during one of the most controversial and unpredictable presidential elections in history. Now free from the constraints of running, Hillary takes you inside the intense personal experience of becoming the first woman nominated for president by a major party in an election marked by rage, sexism, exhilarating highs and infuriating lows, stranger-than-fiction twists, Russian interference, and an opponent who broke all the rules. This is her most personal memoir yet.<BR> <BR>In these pages, she describes what it was like to run against Donald Trump, the mistakes she made, how she has coped with a shocking and devastating loss, and how she found the strength to pick herself back up afterward. With humor and candor, she tells readers what it took to get back on her feet—the rituals, relationships, and reading that got her through, and what the experience has taught her about life. She speaks about the challenges of being a strong woman in the public eye, the criticism over her voice, age, and appearance, and the double standard confronting women in politics.<BR> <BR>She lays out how the 2016 election was marked by an unprecedented assault on our democracy by a foreign adversary. By analyzing the evidence and connecting the dots, Hillary shows just how dangerous the forces are that shaped the outcome, and why Americans need to understand them to protect our values and our democracy in the future.<BR> <BR>The election of 2016 was unprecedented and historic. <i>What Happened </i>is the story of that campaign and its aftermath—both a deeply intimate account and a cautionary tale for the nation.
