Description of this Book

From our funniest writer, a portrait of our most talked-about royal John Fowles dreams of seducing her. Andy Warhol photographs her. Lucian Freud dances with her. Jack Nicholson puts his arm around her. Gore Vidal adores her. John Lennon blushes before her. Marlon Brando clams up in her company. Picasso plots to marry her. She is Princess Margaret. The one with the puffy face and the wraparound shades; the sad Royal, her life spent in decline; the most glamorous woman on earth; the unfailing presence in the index of every memoir, diary or letters collection from the 50s, 60s and 70s. 99 Glimpses of Princess Margaret, by turns comic and tragic, is about fame and art, snobbery and deference, fact and fiction.
