Heddle Nash: Singing Against the Tide

In this lively biography, Eleanor Allen captures both the spirit of an era emerging from the shadow of international war, and the vibrant life of London's inter-war music scene, placing Heddle Nash at its flourishing epicentre. The book documents Nash's career - from his humble beginnings in South London to his glamorous months on the Milanese stage - and also touches on the most important moments of Nash's personal life: from his shattering experiences in the trenches of World War One, his reaction to the tragic death of his most glamorous co-star Anny Ahlers, and his months in Australia and New Zealand, where he would wow audiences who were literally on the other side of the world.
