MEDIA REVIEWS
'The rags-to-riches legend of the gritty girl from Tiger Bay' Daily Mail. * Daily Mail *
'A fascinating history not only of her early career, but of the casual racism and sexism that prevailed in Britain in the Fifties ... and the strength of character Bassey required to overcome it' Mick Brown, Daily Telegraph. * Daily Telegraph *
'Sensitive and empathetic ... lovely details abound' Guardian. * Guardian *
'Shirley Bassey has shown that even a triply underprivileged black Welsh woman could make it to the giddy heights of showbiz. This is the story John L. Williams tells in a fascinating book: the way in which she negotiated herself into another world' Independent. * Independent *
'Wildly entertaining. Someone should make a movie' The Times. * The Times *
