Publishers Description: She was the looks of the 60s. Her face appeared on the cover of every fashion magazine and her life in every gossip column. Jean Shrimpton tells the story of the partnership between her and the East End photographer David Bailey which brought them both fame and fortune Lovers, as well as photographer and model, his sensitive, yet exciting pictures helped her to become known worldwide as "The Shrimp". Her life since then has not always been happy - and was frequently bizarre. She lived for a period with Heathcote Williams and for some time with a schizophrenic. Her modelling career was abandoned as she struggled to come to terms with the problems that her fame had created. Only recently has she found happiness and contentment with her husband Michael Cox and a quiet life in Cornwall, where they run a small hotel.
