MY TOP 10 BOHO BOOKS
With the Sun moving through Gemini [and Mercury going retro for the next three weeks] it’s time to focus on the written word and re-read some of my best-loved books. So here are my top 10 biographies/autobiographies about my favourite bohemians … restless, rebellious, romantic souls who galloped through life with gallons of style and avant-garde abandon …
Pre-Raphaelites – the original rock stars.
Bloomsbury group – last tango at Charleston.
Jane Digby – scandalous adventuress.
Vali Myers – sex and drugs and art.
Frida Kahlo – passion, politics and painting.
Anais Nin – the bohemian diarist.
The Heide Circle – Oz version of the Bloomsbury group.
Beatrix Ost – artist, writer and style icon.
Georgia O’Keeffe – life and death in the desert.
Jenny Kee – Flamingo Park in Oz.
Of course number 11 would be Oscar Wilde – the one and only.
