    One thought on “Spend, Spend, Spend”

    1. I have read this book a couple of times over the years and it was a very interesting read.This lady won a huge sum of money on the football pools and announced that she was going to spend,spend,spend and she did.Felt really sorry for Viv Nicholson on reading this story for it wasn't long before the money ran out and she was back right where she started.A very old book but if you chance on a copy it makes a very interesting read. Recommended.

    2. A gem among tawdry memoirs.Vivian Nicholson was a hard-scrabble sort who won big in the British lottery in the early 1960s. Asked by reporters what she planned to do with the money, she said, "I'm going to spend, spend, spend!" This book details her wild spending sprees, heartaches, and hairdos. Viv has deliciously excessive tastes.Even the chapter titles are exciting: Everything So Stardusty, Werewolves and Spanish Liquorice, I'm Sick to Teeth of Money, Collapsation of the Mental Innards, Viv D [...]

    3. Interesting social insight into poor,feckless working class life of the 1930s-1970s.Ultimately Sad as she and her football pools winner husband spend all their money in a rush of stupidity.A fool and his money are soon parted - never a more true portrayal of the old saying.And the evils of drink! The working class delight in excessive drinking whenever celebrating good fortune has never more been fully exposed.What a waste of a life.
