Bridget Golightly and Joan Hardcastle Book and Novel

Bridget Golightly and Joan Hardcastle - Author


Bridget Golightly is eighty-nine years old. She won the 100 m, 800 m, triple jump and solo synchronised swimming events in the 1968 Mexico Olympic Games. Highlights of her sparkling stage and film career include two Academy Awards as Best Supporting Actress for Little Dorrit and Rocky V, and her much-lauded Titania against Sir John Gielgud’s Bottom. Bridget is also a Nobel Prize-winning mathematician, renowned poet and international peacekeeper, and represented the United Kingdom in the 1959 Eurovision Song Contest with ‘Boom-bang-a-ting-a-ling on a String’. When she’s not busy bringing joy to the world, she likes to relax by drinking a nice cup of tea.

Joan Hardcastle
is eighty-six years old, comes from Yorkshire and doesn’t believe a word Bridget says. Except the bit about the tea.
