'PREISSLESS: The Extraordinary Finding and Losing of a Man'
In November 2016, I completed writing the biography of a very unusual man, with his very unusual wife...
"He’s a bit like Mr Bean, but sexy," says Jacqui, about Frank’s demeanour long before he got dementia. “Everything goes wrong but it all works out for him in the end.” You could say the same for Jacqui, who made it through the American army, a disastrous marriage, a mental hospital and plenty more, before finding her first true love in Frank Preiss, at the age of thirty-seven.
Reaching back as far as Frank’s birth in 1925 Czechoslovakia, ‘Preissless’ is the couple’s double-biography and their somewhat unlikely love story, including their life in the present day, working with aspirant biographer and all.
