From the cover: “To the world at large, Nancy Dell’Olio is a fascinating enigma. Though she is no stranger to the front pages, for years she has maintained a dignified silence about personal matters — despite some quite extraordinary claims in the media. Now, for the first time, she tells her side of the story: her life, her loves and the passions that drive her.

My Beautiful Game is a memoir full of extraordinary energy and told with disarming honesty. From Nancy’s childhood in New York and Italy and the accident which nearly killed her, to her successful career in international law; from the break-up of her marriage in Italy to her arrival in the UK in the full, punishing glare of the celebrity spotlight, and the all-too-public crises which would have finished most of us off.

Here we have an inspirational and entertaining glimpse into the life of a much-loved and yet little-known personality. It introduces us to a host of deeply engaging new characters. There’s Nancy the youthful ballet dancer, Nancy the Italian politician, Nancy the charity worker and Nancy the icon. But, most importantly of all, in My Beautiful Game, we are also introduced for the first time to Nancy the woman.”
