9780340933206: All That Glitters

In the 1990s, Pearl Lowe was a singer in the hugely successful pop group Powder, a fashion model, and a friend to some of the most famous people in the world. A beautiful woman with a glamorous career and a family she adored, Pearl had it all. But soon she began taking an increasingly potent string of drugs and drinking to excess. As her family and body crumbled around her, Pearl realized she had to make a choice: confront the demons, get clean, and have her life back, or give up and slip further into addiction. Pearl made her choice: these days she lives with her children and husband in the British countryside and designs her own clothing line. Inspiring and riveting, this is the autobiography of a woman who almost failed to escape a world that is relentless in its destructiveness despite its scintillating appearance.

About the Author:

Pearl Lowe was lead singer in Britpop band Powder. She was also infamously part of the Primrose Hill set along with Kate Moss, Sadie Frost and Jude Law.

Review:

a remarkably open and candid account that acarries a message of hope and redemption at its core... * Daily Express * 'a poignantly self-flagellating inventory of her failures.' * Observer * horribly compelling * Guardian * Utterly compelling * Sunday Times * Our book of the summer, the year, the century * Guardian * Lifts the lid on what it's like to run with the Primrose Hill set ... Ultimately uplifting, it's a sobering read for anyone who finds Pete Doherty's lifestyle glamorous * Cosmopolitan *

Book Description Hodder Stoughton General Division, United Kingdom, 2008. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Pearl Lowe has been a singer in a hugely successful pop group, a fashion model and a friend to some of the most famous people in the country. In the nineties when Britpop was in full swing and London was officially the coolest place on the planet, Pearl really did have it all. She was a beautiful woman with a glamorous career and a rock and roll husband she adored, as well as a growing family of gorgeous kids. Except, actually, the parties and the homelife were in terrible tension because Pearl was drinking and taking drugs to such excess that she wasn t sure she would survive. Pearl was a junkie before she discovered party drugs like ecstasy and cocaine. She managed to look after her kids in between enormous binges, but she knew she had a choice to make: confront the demons, get clean and have her life back, or give up and slip away further into addiction, illness, death. Pearl made her choice. These days she lives with her husband and children in the countryside and she has left the London lifestyle behind. But she isn t the kind of person who could ever give up on glamour - it s just that these days she designs her own line of beautiful lace dresses rather than killing herself slowly with booze and drugs. She is happy. Pearl s story is a fascinating insight into a world that appears scintillating but is relentless in its destructiveness. It s also inspiring in its message that recovery is possible and sustainable, for everyone. Bookseller Inventory # AA69780340933206
