Anything but Ordinary - The Nine Lives of Cécile

Author(s): Ron Davidson; Cécile Dorward


Detailing the extraordinary life of an extraordinary woman, this unique memoir trails the world travels of C cile Doward. Born into a flamboyant family in 1911, the young C cile married a middle-aged professor of philosophy, mixing with intellectual superstars of the day such as Russell, Moore, Huxley and Haldane. At 58 she began touring the world solo in a camper van, and became widely known as the world's oldest hippy. She traveled until she was 84. Here, Cecile not only recreates the remarkable details of her life, but provides real insight into her times and her own social, psychological, and sexual journey through those times.

2000. First edition. A near fine copy with a small dent in the middle of the head of the spine.
