907 3835 WEINTRAUB, Stanley Edward the Caresser : The Playboy Prince Who Became Edward VII
Hardcover Free Press: NY; 2001; First US Edition Very Good+ in Very Good+ dust wrapper  
429 pages; A new book with a bumped spine foot and bottom corners. Dust wrapper is faintly rubbed and edgeworn.; ' In each of the past three centuries, a Prince of Wales has waited most of his life to become King. Each one disappointed his reigning parent, had an unhappy marriage, and conducted scandalous affairs. But only one gave his name to an age: the future Edward VII, Albert Edward, eldest son of Queen Victoria.

Drawing on previously unavailable, little-used or unknown diaries, letters, memoirs, and reportage from both sides of the Atlantic the author depicts the Prince and his worlds: his frustrating childhood, his introductions to gentlemanly sins at Oxford and Cambridge, his chilly marriage, and his constant escapes to balls, races, spas, and country houses, where he gambled, gourmandized, caroused, and whored. His string of "god-children" included some almost certainly his own. Yet despite, or because of, his flaws, "Bertie" was loved wherever he went. He was a natural diplomat, able to charm strangers and dance all night. When he toured the United States in 1860, he was a media sensation, and there was even talk of a marriage with President Buchanan's niece. His story is a picture of tragedy and farce—qualities that fit Edward perfectly for the role of modern monarch.'; Published @$30.00

Dorothy Whipple is a superb stylist, with a calm intelligence in the tradition of Mrs Gaskell (both wrote in the Midlands and had similar preoccupations)."; 'Any novel by Dorothy Whipple is guaranteed to be an absorbing story of family relationships, romance & heartache...

Liz, Jonathan, and their moody adolescent daughter Alice live in a dreary apartment above the private college they bought on impulse, hoping to make it a great success. To pay the mortgage they simply must sell their beloved house. Now, as debts mount, their relationship and finances are crumbling.

Unlike Jonathan, who lets things happen, Liz's need to take action leads to Marcus Witherstone, driver of a Mercedes, husband of a difficult wife, and senior partner of the firm, handling the house sale. Marcus has two splendid ideas, to rent the house instead of selling it--and have an affair with Liz. And when teenage Alice becomes infatuated with the dashing out-of-work actor and his wife who lease the property, a wicked comedy of modern marriage begins...and the asking price for a house includes a stunning renovation of dreams and hearts.'; "Alan Ayckbourn meets Joann Trollope. . . .
