One beautiful dress is the key to three brave women’s destinies... France 1919: Jessie is celebrating the last heady days of her honeymoon. But when her husband suddenly disappears she finds herself bereft. Until a chance encounter thrusts her into the centre of the intoxicating world of Parisian high life. Hollywood 1945: Lisa has come a long way from her quiet, unassuming life in London and is taking Hollywood by storm. But all that glitters is not gold, and as the smoke and mirrors of the lifestyle she so longed for shatter around her there are some secrets she can never escape. London 1965: Cat, headstrong and independent, drawn to danger and passionately opposed to injustice, has no idea of the legacy that precedes her. Once past secrets are unveiled, she has the chance to find out what liberty really means... An evocative story of survival, betrayal and the invincibility of love.

A truly inspirational memoir, this is Ed's story: an affecting, candid and wildly funny tale of one man's meteoric rise to the top of the retail and fashion world - from heroin addict to MD of Liberty, one of Britain's most iconic institutions. Along the way, Ed shares his ups and downs: the riotous hedonism of the 1980s New York and Florida party scene; the devastating impact of the AIDS crisis, during which he lost his best friend; his first job as a spritzer at Macy's; his role in transforming the fortunes of two of New York's most prestigious luxury department stores; his battle with drug addiction and depression; his experiences working with, and feting, a multiplicity of high-profile stars; his top tips for surviving in fashion and retail; and finally his coming to London to take the reins at Liberty, a stranger in a strange land. At Liberty is a window onto a seemingly glamorous world, a world that Ed writes about with a sparky, wry, self-deprecating humour and a fantastic sense of pathos. Ed truly is a larger-than-life character, on and off the page.
