Matron on Call

By Joan Woodcock
Authors:
Joan Woodcock
That's the thing about Casualty - one minute you were trying desperately to save someone's life, the next you were trying to stop a simple nosebleed. Since training to be a nurse in the 1960s and with an NHS career spanning over forty years, Joan Woodcock has seen it all. Working on hospital wards and in prisons and police units, Joan quickly learned to keep a cool head whatever the situation. Here she recounts the highs and lows of her time in the casualty unit. Taking place over twenty-four hours one New Year's Eve, Matron on Call shows what really goes on behind the scenes in Accident and Emergency. Joan deals with every manner of injury: from broken limbs, horrific road accidents and fatal heart attacks to drunken patients jumping the queue, ingrown toenails and earache, Joan shares her memories and tales. Funny, poignant and compelling, this is a heartwarming portrait of a dedicated professional.

Mary Quant My Autobiography

By Mary Quant
Authors:
Mary Quant
Not many names epitomise an era, but Mary Quant is such a name. Her life, her ideas, her style touched (and still touch) everyone. Mary Quant is fashion. Most people connect Mary with one thing - the mini skirt - that ground-breaking design that is as potent now as it was when it first appeared in the early sixties. But her influence carried way beyond those early frenetic black-and-white years. Now, towards the close of what has been one of the most influential and visionary careers in fashion's history, Mary Quant has written a memoir in her own inimitable style - a witty, unique account of her whirlwind life. It is a story like no other. But then there is only one Mary Quant.
