Description

Henrietta Moraes, reformed drunk, ex-drug addict, model of Francis Bacon and Lucien Freud, and wife of Indian poet, Dom Moraes, tells her autobiography, from her convent girlhood in Peckham Rye to the pubs and jazz clubs of Soho in the 1950s. An habituee of the French Pub and the Colony Room, friend to John Minton, George Melly, Francis Wyndham, Bacon and Lucien Freud, she left Soho and Chelsea for the hippy life in the 1960s. From the life in a caravan to a Guinness mansion in Ireland, from LSD to heroin, Henrietta goes from one extreme to another. Finally, she has to come to terms with her alcoholism. Given three months to live, she gives up the drink and finds a new life.
