A moving and inspiring memoir of Doreen Spooner. Struggling to hold her head high through the disintegration of her family through alcoholism, she began a career as Fleet Street's first female photographer. While the love and family life she'd always dreamed of fell apart, Doreen walked into the frantic world of a national newspaper. Determined to save her family from crippling debt, she captured the Swinging Sixties through political scandals, glamorous stars, and cultural icons, while her home life spiraled further out of control. The two sides of this story take you through a touching and emotional love story, coupled with a hugely enjoyable portrait of post-war Britain.
