HELLO GOODBYE HELLO: A CIRCLE OF 101 REMARKABLE MEETINGS offers up the witty British writer's collection of strange yet true stories of encounters between the rich and famous in a fine collection of strange celebrity meetings; from George Bernard Shaw's encounter with Harpo Marx in the nude to the Duchess of Windsor's tea with Hitler at Berchtesgaden. Each of the 101 encounters is described in exactly 1001 words, offering biographical sketches that link handily together as two famous people meet, then the second person in each meeting becomes the first in the next encounter. A fun compendium of chance and unique associations makes this a winner!
