Heddle Nash: Singing Against the Tide

Paperback / softback
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.
