My Lives and Loves Volume 2 covers Frank Harris's friendship and encounters with the Prince of Wales, Oscar Wilde, Guy De Maupassant, Lord Randolph Churchill, William Parnell and others. He sets the Evening News on its feet and comes to know the minds of Shakespeare and Goethe and the bodies of Elaine and Laura. He comes to realize the virtue of chastity and that it must be practiced - at least from time to time.
Notorious Frank Harris in his own lifetime at the beginning of the 20th century was an editor, journalist, and publisher - a well known personality both professionally and personally as his aggression and bravado made him larger than life. However, it is undoubtedly his detailed scandalous account of his sexual exploits that remain his lasting legacy. Leslie Grantham's reading admirably captures this vivid depiction of his many erotic encounters.
