Brief Encounters by Edwin Moore

Book Description

This informative and entertaining look at our past and present explores the pleasantries, pardons, interrogations and arguments that have passed between the likes of Jackie Kennedy and Princess Diana, Lew Wallace and Billy the Kid, Osama Bin Laden and John Simpson, and JS Bach and Frederick the Great. The meetings in this book offer a unique perspective on brief moments in our history. As Donald Rumsfeld (whom we also encounter in the book) would perhaps put it, this is 'stuff' as it happened, and we are all interested in stuff.

Author Biography - Edwin Moore

Edwin Moore was a senior editor for a large publishing company for 17 years and was made redundant in 2005. He now lives on the other side of the publishing fence, where he writes quirky reference texts and occasional (non-quirky) obituaries for The Times. He is a film and television extra and can be seen not bumping into things in various movies (a blind man in Hallam Foe, a drunk in Wedding Belles and he plays a mad scientist in a Stagecoach advert). He is also the author of Lemmings Don't Leap published by Chambers - an amusing and informative book that explodes dozens of fondly-held beliefs, from the serious to the frivolous.
