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

Everyman and the Beautiful People, written by an author who was there, brings to life the ‘Summer of Love’, that most exciting of times

Meanwhile, provincial journalist Howard Jenkins is transfixed by Meg. But how is a B-list guy to win an a-list girl? And what comes next when the impossible happens?

The story moves on to Thatcher’s Britain, where 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.

And finally, in the present day Meg’s former lover Howard is 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.

Everyman and the Beautiful People brings together Martin Horrocks’s trilogy of novellas: Girl at the Top Table, His Lordship’s Disgraceful Daughter and Coda for a Star.
