Hello Goodbye Hello: A Circle of 101 Remarkable Meetings Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From one of England’s wittiest writers, a “captivating, glittering, engaging, entertaining confection” (Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times) of 101 unlikely encounters between pairs of historical figures from Salvador Dali and Sigmund Freud to Marilyn Monroe and Frank Lloyd Wright.

Hello Goodbye Hello is the supremely inventive but utterly factual story of some of the most unlikely encounters between two notable people over the last 150 years. Told in daisy-chain style, the second person in each encounter is the first person in the next.

Madonna was terrified by her brief encounter with Martha Graham, who herself had been fascinated by her meeting with Helen Keller. Michael Jackson was turned off by his experience working with Madonna. The King of Pop, however, intrigued Nancy Reagan endlessly—although the First Lady couldn’t figure out why he spoke like a girl. Groucho Marx and T.S. Eliot? It happened. In fact, they corresponded regularly. Marilyn Monroe and Nikita Khrushchev? They met in Hollywood at the urging of her studio, which insisted she wear her tightest, sexiest dress for the occasion.

“Irresistible,” (People) “deliciously clever and amusing,” (Jonathan Yardley, The Washington Post) Hello Goodbye Hello proves that truth is stranger than fiction—and far more enjoyable. “Dip into this book anywhere and you will be rewarded with something delightful,” recommends Moira Hodgson in The Wall Street Journal.
