A Big Life

Lantern, 2006 - Businesswomen - 423 pages
'Jenny Kee? Didn't she design that Koala jumper Princess Di wore when she was pregnant?', 'Wasn't she the Softly lady in all those TV ads?', 'Didn't she create that amazing frock salon, Flamingo Park?'

Yes, but that's only part of the remarkable Jenny Kee story. With searing honesty she lays bare her private life- her dysfunctional family; her insecurities as a person and an artist; her love affairs and friendships; the highs and lows of motherhood and marriage to a gifted painter; her relationship with the younger man who became her soul mate, and its tragic end; the personal price she paid for the enormous success - and disastrous decline - of her business; and her road to spiritual and emotional fulfilment.

Truly A BIG LIFE.
