The Life and Times of Norman Myers
By Norman Myers
Book Guild, UK
171 pages, illustrated
Norman Myers - dubbed Uncle Magic by Lord Hanson - has met most of the rich and famous people of Britain over the last 50 years and given them a lot of pleasure. From humble beginnings in the East End of London, he became a children's entertainer, specializing in organizing complete children's parties for the privileged. In this modest and amusing autobiography there are wonderful stories of his encounters with famous clients: Lord Lucan, the week before his disappearance, Ringo Starr at the height of Beatlemania, and glimpses of young royals. Providing all the perfect elements for a successful children's party came naturally to Norman. Such was Uncle Magic's popularity that he was asked back again and again, organizing parties for other children in the family and often for the next generation too.
