About this title

Synopsis:

In this revealing memoir, Richard McKenzie weaves an engaging account of life with his wife Ava and her close relationship with her father Fred Astaire, vignettes of their contrasting childhoods in California, and life in the far reaches of the Irish country side-where they moved with sons Kevin and Tyler in 1975.

About the Author:

Richard McKenzie grew up in Santa Cruz, California. He met Ava Astaire in the early 1960s in Raymond Burr's Gallery in Beverly Hills, where he was a painter. His own McKenzie Gallery enjoyed ten years of popularity and provided art classes to many Hollywood personalities. In 1970 he and Ava married, and in 1975 moved to the south coast of Ireland, where they live today.
