From the Downton Abbey-style splendour her Yorkshire home, aristocratic actress Meg Denby emerged to capture the spirit of ‘Swinging London’ in the Sixties. Drop-dead gorgeous Meg was the girl who had everything - but her commitment to causes from Vietnam to women’s lib was too much for the film moguls.

Now in Thatcher’s Britain, Meg is clawing her way back from the brink of her lost career. She has lost none of her radical zeal. She finds herself in the midst of the ‘Battle of Orgreave’, the defining event of the 1984-85 struggle between striking miners’ and the government.

Meanwhile, in the present day Meg’s former lover, journalist Howard Jenkins, looks back on his long life without her. Locked into a loveless marriage to Cynthia, the girl from the tennis club, he asks himself whether it should all have been different – or was he never more than Everyman among the beautiful people?

For good and ill, Meg and Howard both remain in the long shadow of the Sixties ‘Summer of Love’. And each in their different ways finds a resolution at last.

Set in Yorkshire and London, Martin Horrocks’ Coda for a Star is a standalone story that completes the author’s Meg Denby novella trilogy. This also comprises Girl at the Top Table and His Lordship’s Disgraceful Daughter. Horrocks, a former journalist, is himself a survivor of the Sixties.
