The name behind the creation of the infamous club, Annabel's, in Berkeley Square; wife of entrepreneur, the late James Goldsmith. These are Annabel Goldsmith’s memoirs, well written and an enjoyable read to boot

Synopsis

Annabel by Lady Annabel Goldsmith

Memoirs of the woman who gave her name to London's hippest nightclub, 'Annabel's' and was married to the entrepreneur Sir James Goldsmith

Lady Annabel Goldsmith is a daughter of the 8th Marquess of Londonderry. In these memoirs she tells of her aristocratic upbringing with an increasingly eccentric father, a Conservative MP with strong liberal leanings, and a mother who died young from cancer.

Married to Mark Birley at the tender age of 20, she was the name behind the creation of his club, Annabel's, in Berkeley Square. As a result of his serial affairs their marriage did not last, but by then Annabel had entered into a relationship with James Goldsmith. Annabel eventually married Goldsmith and had three children, including Jemima Khan and Ben, who is marrying into the Rothschild family. But tragedy was never far away: Rupert, her eldest son, died in an accident and Goldsmith died from cancer after financing the Referendum Party in the 1997 general election.

This is the story of someone right at the heart of British society, but it is told with immense wit and warmth touching on subjects that are universal.

Reviews

'this toff-tastic memoir, chronicling her exploits in the drawing rooms and bedrooms of Britain's most-moneyed. Goldsmith herself comes across as fun and warm.'
Catherine Shoard THE EVENING STANDARD

'this lively volume of memoirs'
Sally Cousins SUNDAY TELEGRAPH

'in a carefully written and down to earth style, she offers us a glimpse into her life.'
DAILY EXPRESS

'this wonderful memoir.'
THE SCOTSMAN

For me, to read is to learn, to reflect, to escape, to think, to contemplate and my time for space and calm.
