by Beryl Cook (Author)


Beryl Cook's place deep in the heart of the British public is long-standing . Her humour, playfulness, subtlety and perceptiveness have guaranteed her position as Britain's most enduringly popular artist. Saucy and shy, risque and prudish, she records details of contemporary life with irrepressible glee. Cruising is a book that illustrates both the sailing and the amorous kinds. Whether it's a group of large women tumbling into a tardis-sized jacuzzi on the deck of an ocean liner, or a bride-to-be lunging into the arms of an unsuspecting Tarzanogram on her hen night, Beryl Cook paints with delicious wit, inviting us in on a world having a good time.
