Grace Coddington, the passionate and flame-haired doyenne of fashion. It is said that she has the knack of being in the right place at the right time; that she can predict a trend; turn a piece of clothing into a best-seller which flies off the racks; spot the most talented new photographers, and break out models who epitomize the look of the moment. What is certainly true is that clothes inspire Grace to tell stories; and she has told hundreds of them over the 50 years she has spent in the fashion industry with pictures realised in careful collaborations. And now, here, she tells her own story. Beginning in wartime Anglesey, Grace: A Memoir follows her trajectory from London in the swinging Sixties, to Paris at the start of the ready-to-wear revolution, and on to America in the late 1980's when the era of power-dressing and the supermodel began, and the centre of gravity in the fashion world shifted from Europe to the US. More than simply a memoir, this is a cultural history of the last half century, populated by the beautiful people - the models, actors, designers and photographers who make up Grace's world. Along the way Grace shares her forthright views on everything from plastic surgery, cats, photography in the digital era and the nature of beauty.

"Cosima" tells the story of an aspiring writer growing up in Nuoro, Sardinia during the last decades of the nineteenth century when formal education for women was rare and literary careers unheard-of. Based on Deledda's own life, the work describes a young woman's struggle against the dismay and disapproval of her family and friends at her creative ambitions. Yet it also reads like a charming fable with details of family life, rural traditions and wild bandits, and it is as much a novel of memory as of character or action. Deledda's characters are poor country folk driven by some predetermined force. Their loves are tragic, their lives as hard and as rigidly controlled as nature itself in the hills of Sardinia. Deledda creates memorable figures who play out their lives against this backdrop of mountains and bare plains, sheepfolds and vineyards. Shimmering in the distance is the sea and escape - for a few - to the Continent or America. In 1926 Grazia Deledda became the second woman and the second Italian to receive the Nobel Prize for Literature. She wrote thirty-three novels, including "Reeds in the Wind," and many books of short stories, almost all set on Sardinia. Her work has become well known to English-speaking readers through Martha King's translations for Italica Press.
