My Improper Mother and Me

A compelling biography of Lotte Berk by her daughter, Esther Fairfax.



Britt Eckland, Maureen Lipman, Geraldine McEwan, Edna O’Brien, Pru Leith – just five devotees of the Lotte Berk technique, a radical fitness programme devised by the outrageous German émigré, Lotte Berk. This is a compelling biography of Berk by her daughter, Esther Fairfax. It reveals the inner workings of a Bohemian life lived to the extreme. Cajoled to dance naked in Paris at the age of 16, Fairfax’s story embraces drug addiction, sexual liberation, poverty, isolation, fame and, finally, hope.
