A memoire written by M R Stringer the wife of the late Charles ‘ Chic’ Stringer is a book to get hold of. Chic Stringer was a still photographer of considerable talent and worked on many movies. including Mad Max. I can only add to David Stratton’s review. It is a stunningly well written personal memoire by M-R of an excruciating love story and in my copy of ; ‘And then like my dreams’, I challenge anyone to read page 280-to 285… and not be totally left, well…wracked. I was totally knocked out, transfixed and mesmerized. I did not think I could be so moved. It also includes deliciously written funny episodes and incidents. Laughter and tears always the ingredients of a unique love.
The pain of losing a beautiful loved one, could not have been better shared, and personally have come at a better time. I bought the book from the local ABC shop here in Bowral. The title? AND THEN LIKE MY DREAMS.
It is available in hard copy as well as in down-loadable form.
