I’m so excited to be joining the 12 Days of @clinkstreetpublishing event that is going on in the lead up to Christmas 😍
As part of this, I was able to read some amazing books which I will be sharing with you over the next few weeks!
First up is Ballroom Fever by George Lloyd.
If you don’t know I’m a HUGE fan of Strictly Come Dancing and anything dancing related really so when I was able to read an ARC of Ballroom Fever I was over the moon!
Everyone LOVES getting the inside scoop on all the gossip and goings-on backstage and what I loved about this book was I got to learn all the secrets behind showbiz!
The book follows George Lloyd’s experience of how he became a rising star in Ballroom during the 1970s. Here’s the blurb:
The dog-eat-dog 70’s Ballroom scene was lubricated with huge amounts of alcohol and sex; and budding ballroom professional George Lloyd was there for every filthy second of it.
Plucked from a life of mucking out hogs, George is snapped up by a London dance school where he becomes a rising star of Ballroom.
The late 70’s signals the death knell for Ballroom dancing across the country. However, the guy who saves the day is none other than George Lloyd, who helps many dance schools by introducing Disco Dancing to his classes.
Through a haze of drink and a coterie of adoring women, George becomes an instant doyen of the British dance scene and is nominated for one of the biggest awards in the industry. But, for every new star on the block, there is always a queue of nasty adversaries, with daggers sharpened, waiting in the shadows.
A moving memoir to say the least but one I thoroughly enjoyed!
