That saying? Behind every famous man ...? From Mrs Midas to Queen Kong, from Elvis' twin sister to Pygmalion's bride, they're all here, in Carol Ann Duffy's inspired and inspirational collection, "The World's Wife". Witty and thought-provoking, this is a tongue-in-cheek, no-holds-barred look at the real movers and shakers across history, myth and legend. If you have ever wondered how, exactly, Darwin came up with his theory of evolution, or what, precisely, Frau Freud thought about her husband, then this is the book for you. 'Inventive, subversive and written with great rhythmical and rhyming dash' - "Sunday Telegraph". 'Carol Ann Duffy reveals the foibles of the great, the ghastly and the ordinary bloke, and the sufferings of those closest to them. The result is a melange of history lesson, fairy-tale and modern-day domestic tragedy, with the occasional joke thrown in for good measure' - "Scotsman".   show more
