In this bestselling book, Australia's most popular biographer, Peter FitzSimons, not only reveals the stories behind the stories, but also documents the extraordinary contours of Nene's own life. Her journalistic career took her all the way from interviewing a young housewife by the name of Hazel Hawke - who told her that she thought herself of 'no news value' - to paying the same Hazel a king's ransom years later for the exclusive rights to her side of the story of her break-up with Bob. Along the way she interviewed Mae West, met Diana, Princess of Wales, and introduced Athena Starwoman and feng shui to women around the country. Propping her up and keeping her going for 22 years was the great love of her life, Patrick Bowring. But on 24 May 1996, Nene's life changed forever ...
