Ninety-Nine Glimpses of Princess Margaret

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Craig Brown

Narrated By: Eleanor Bron

Date: August 2018

Duration: 12 hours 24 minutes

Summary:

A witty and profound audiobook portrait of the most talked-about English royal.

She made John Lennon blush and Marlon Brando tongue-tied. She iced out Princess Diana and humiliated Elizabeth Taylor. Andy Warhol photographed her. Jack Nicholson offered her cocaine. Gore Vidal revered her. Francis Bacon heckled her. Peter Sellers was madly in love with her. For Pablo Picasso, she was the object of sexual fantasy.

Princess Margaret aroused passion and indignation in equal measures. To her friends, she was witty and regal. To her enemies, she was rude and demanding. In her 1950s heyday, she was seen as one of the most glamorous and desirable women in the world. By the time of her death in 2002, she had come to personify disappointment. One friend said he had never known an unhappier woman. The tale of Princess Margaret is Cinderella in reverse: hope dashed, happiness mislaid, life mishandled.

Such an enigmatic and divisive figure demands a reckoning that is far from the usual fare. Combining interviews, parodies, dreams, parallel lives, diaries, announcements, lists, catalogues, and essays, Craig Brown’s Ninety-Nine Glimpses of Princess Margaret is a kaleidoscopic experiment in biography and a witty meditation on fame and art, snobbery and deference, bohemia and high society.

Genres:

    Found the topic interesting wasn’t as found of this narrator for this book. The narrator wasn’t bad it just didn’t fit this book

  • Myriah H.

    This book I believe was more fiction than fact based. The narration was brilliant!

  • Andrea F.

    Thoroughly enjoyed this book, the narrator's ability to change voices really made the story. I laughed out loud at times at Princess Margaret's "sayings", she was quite a character.

  • Greg H.

    Loved the narrators voice and ability to change characters.
