A daughter's homage to the extraordinary lives of two fascinating, irrepressible people who were larger than life emblems of a bygone age. Tatiana du Plessix, Russian wife of a French diplomat, and Alexander Liberman, a gifted magazine editor and aspiring artist, lived as part of the artistic Russian émigré community in Paris in the 1930s. The two began a passionate affair and fled to New York with Tatiana's young daughter, Francine. There they rose to the top of high society, holding court to the midcentury's intellectuals and entertainers, friends like Marlene Dietrich, Salvador Dalí, and the publishing tycoon Condé Nast. Tatiana became an icon of New York fashion, and the hats she designed for Saks Fifth Avenue were de rigueur for stylish women everywhere. Liberman eventually came to preside over the Condé Nast empire. The glamorous life they shared was both creative and destructive and was marked by an exceptional bond forged out of their highly charged love and raging self-centeredness.--From publisher description.

"One of the great literary forces of her age or any age, Germaine de Stael was born into the political and intellectual aristocracy of her time. The daughter of Jacques Necker, Louis XVI's finance minister; she married Sweden's ambassador to the French court and for two decades held the limelight as a political figure and prolific writer. Admittedly not a beauty, she was nonetheless notoriously seductive and enjoyed whirlwind affairs with some of the most influential men of her time. She was demonized by Napoleon for her forthrightness, her powerful intellect, and her prestigious salon, a hothouse of subversive ideas and sexual intrigue. The Emperor exiled her, on and off, for the last two decades of her life." "Madame de Stael - force of nature, exuberant idealist, and ultimate enthusiast - waged a lifelong struggle against all that was tyrannical, cynical, or passionless in her time; and left a legacy of enlightened liberalism that radiated throughout Europe during the nineteenth century."--Jacket.
