    Default What Will Be, William Fox Pitt

    Just finished his autobiography... what do other people think?

    I was slightly disapointed that it was ghost written as William is one of the only intelligent ones out there! Several very interesting areas, eg too scared to jump until he was 10, the extent of his mother's help and Wiggy's affair with Andrew Nicholson - had no idea that it was going on A YEAR before they got found out!

    I also enjoyed reading about Shelia Cotter - an amazing consumate horsewoman.

    Zara's is a biography, if the one I've seen on amazon is the one other people have seen.

    I've not read the WFP one yet, and not sure whether I want to or not

    OK, so I knew that Wiggy F-P was now with Andrew Nicholson but what's the full story? One minute it was being reported that WFP was getting married in the October (to Wiggy), the next minute his engagement to Alice was announced....
    I'm sorry for my ignorance, I just wondered...?
