The late great Dubliner, Ronnie Drew, was six months into writing his biography when he was diagnosed with cancer. He had produced warm, witty and insightful material that made it clear that he was a wonderful writer as well as a great singer and storyteller. With the encouragement of his wife Deirdre and his family, he continued to think about the book and conducted a number of interviews to keep things ticking over until he was well enough to resume work on it. But sadly, much as he wanted to, Ronnie did not get to finish his story. However, with the whole-hearted co-operation of his daughter and son, Cliodhna and Phelim, it has been possible to put together Ronnie's work on his memoir along with his other writings, interviews with Cliodhna and Phelim, a wealth of photographs and other material from the family archive, and contributions from close friends, to create a book that is a wonderful portrait of, and a fitting and loving tribute to, the man Bono called 'the king of Ireland'.

"Participation in the Zulu and Boer wars and two world wars didn't make Fritz Duquesne a hero. His heroics were as counterfeit as the medals he wore. But his incredibly colorful life was filled with drama, danger, and high adventure, and Art Ronnie captures them all on the pages of this book." "Friends called Duquesne "the best company in the world." Prison officials considered him "one of the most dangerous criminals in the United States." FBI agents hot on his trail found him "likable." At one time or another the South Africa-born soldier of fortune was a prisoner of war, explorer, African hunting adviser to Teddy Roosevelt, inventor, reporter, novelist, publicist for Joseph P. Kennedy's movie company, stockbroker, womanizer, spy, murderer, and certified lunatic. Thanks to the classic 1945 movie The House on 92nd Street, he is best remembered as the central figure in a ring of thirty-three Nazi spies arrested in New York City in 1941. FBI director J. Edgar Hoover called their arrest "the greatest spy roundup in U.S. history," and their trial was one of the nation's longest and most celebrated. For Duquesne, it was the end of a forty-year adventure." "This meticulously researched biography offers the truest account possible of Duquesne, an obscure and illusory figure in the secretive world of spies. His story has been gathered from primary sources, including his friends, his prison records in South Africa, Bermuda, and America, his personal letters, documents in the National Archives, interviews with FBI agents who investigated him, and information from Bureau files, as well as accounts of his activities published at the time. The wealth of illustrations accompanying the text show Duquesne from the age of twenty, when he was "the handsomest man and deadliest swordsman in Europe," to his last years in prison, ill and barely recognizable."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

  • Publisher: Andrews UK Limited



Ronnie Biggs: The Inside Story, written by two of Ronnie Biggs’s closest friends and most ardent supporters, delivers exactly what it says on the label, giving a very personal, unique and yet disturbing insight into the mind and subsequent treatment by the judicial and penal systems of the man that became a legendary household name for his role in one of Britain’s most notorious crimes, the Great Train Robbery of 1963, and his subsequent life on the run upon his escape from prison in 1965. Raising pointed questions and dispelling many myths, the story makes one wonder who is the greater criminal: the carpenter that played a bit part in an unarmed robbery 45 years ago, who has remained incarcerated since his return to the UK in 2001 despite the fact that he is now a frail, wheelchair-bound 79-year-old grandfather who is no threat to society, is fed via a tube to his stomach and can only communicate by pointing to letters on a laminated sheet; or the justice and prison systems that have allowed him to rot in jail for so long. One thing’s for sure, although Ronnie Biggs’s body is letting him down after a series of strokes and other illnesses, his legal team, campaign supporters, underworld friends and devoted family certainly aren’t, and neither is his own fighting spirit or his humanity in the face of inhumanity. All he wants now is to be able to die a free man rather than suffer “a slow crucifixion on the Home Office cross”, and once all the facts have been digested one can only be moved to ask: “How could anyone deny him that?”
