Book Summary:

With Netflix adapting BB's 44 CHAPTERS ABOUT 4 MEN into the new series, SEX/LIFE, you're going to want the full story behind her whirlwind rock star romance based on true events. In 1999, I met my Prince Charming. He was the tall, tattooed, wickedly handsome bass player for the up-and-coming rock band, Phantom Limb. But, more importantly, he was mine. I knew it the moment he flashed me that shy, dimpled smile. And he knew it too. Hansel "Hans" Oppenheimer wore his heart on one sleeve and scrawled lyrics about me on the other. Unlike the losers of my past, Hans showered me with tenderness, took me places I'd never been before, and showed me the type of all-consuming love I'd thought only existed in fairy tales. But, like any good fairy tale, my road to happily ever after was paved with challenges, and right when I least expected it ... it forked. In 1999, I met my Prince Charming. In 2000, I met my soul mate. "Star is the kind of '90s teenage dream you won't want to wake up from. BB's world is hotter than stage lights, and this must-read book is your backstage pass. I love this series!" --Kayti McGee, author of Want

  • Release Date : 1954
  • Pages : 200
  • ISBN : 052108394X
  • Language : English, Spanish, and French

Book Summary:

This book was originally published in 1954. Grahame Clark's excavations at Star Carr from 1949 to 1951 have long been regarded as a model of how archaeological investigation should be conducted. In addition to this, the importance of the site itself, the first early mesolithic site in Europe from which a full complement of bone, antler, wood and other organic material was recovered alongside the flint industry, has established for this report on the excavations a permanent place in all archaeological libraries. The book is now reissued.
