Författare: Rod Stewart.
L’autobiografia di Rod Stewart non tralascia nessun episodio. Dal consumo di cocaina al racconto di quando ha perso la verginità a 16 anni con una signora “vecchia e grassa” e di come questo episodio abbia ispirato la sua “Maggie May”. I suoi matrimoni, divorzi, le sue relazioni travagliate con alcune delle donne più belle del mondo – Bond Girls, attrici, e modelle -, la sua passione per il calcio, il suo successo mondiale e la sua lotta contro quel cancro alle corde vocali che per un attimo ha fermato il grande Rod.
Franklin’s account of his life is divided into four parts, reflecting the different periods at which he wrote them. In the “Introduction” of the 1916 publication of the Autobiography, editor F. Pine wrote that Franklin’s biography provided the “most remarkable of all the remarkable histories of our self-made men” with Franklin as the greatest exemplar. Eventually James gets in trouble with the colonial assembly, which jails him for a short time and then forbids him to continue publishing his paper.
James and his friends come up with the stratagem that the Courant should hereafter be published under the name of Benjamin Franklin, although James will still actually be in control. By the time Ben reaches Philadelphia, Andrew Bradford has already replaced his employee, but refers Ben to Samuel Keimer, another printer in the city, who is able to give him work. The Governor, Sir William Keith, takes notice of Franklin and offers to set him up in business for himself. They establish their business, and plan to start a newspaper, but when Keimer hears of this plan, he rushes out a paper of his own, the Pennsylvania Gazette. This publication limps along for three quarters of a year before Franklin buys the paper from Keimer and makes it “extremely profitable”. The Saturday Evening Post traces its lineage to Franklin’s Pennsylvania Gazette. The second part begins with two letters Franklin received in the early 1780s while in Paris, encouraging him to continue the Autobiography, of which both correspondents have read Part One.
