Win a copy of Riviera Dreaming by Maureen Emerson

Written by on August 16, 2018 in Competitions

COMPETITION FINISHED Riviera Dreaming by Maureen Emerson is fascinating book which explores the lives of architect Barry Dierks and his lover Eric Sawyer. They changed the face of the French Riviera, developing an architecture empire remodelling and building homes and gardens for their star studded cliental including film executive Jack Warner, playwright Somerset Maugham and the rich and famous of the early 20th century.

Behind those walls were scandalous affairs, exquisite parties, politicians letting loose and royals partying. Winston Churchill, Bette Davis, Wallis Simpson, Picasso, Lloyd George, Duke of Windsor, J.P Morgan, The Rothchilds and many more feature in this well researched book that’s filled with fabulous anecdotes.

It’s a great read…
