Reflected glory : the life of Pamela Churchill Harriman by Sally Bedell Smith( Book )

13 editions published between 1966 and 2013 in English and held by 1,175 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"English debutante Pamela Digby first came into the public eye when she married Churchill's dissolute son Randolph. While he was overseas in World War II, she had an affair with Averell Harriman, the first in a line of wealthy and prominent men - including Jock Whitney, Prince Aly Khan, Gianni Agnelli, Elie de Rothschild, and Stavros Niarchos - who supported her over the next two decades. She found legitimacy as the wife of Broadway producer Leland Hayward and became wealthy when she married Harriman on the eve of his eightieth birthday. At age sixty she reinvented herself as a kingmaker in the Democratic Party, and more than a decade later was rewarded with an appointment as U.S. Ambassador to France." "Smith details how Pamela Harriman, even after she had become independent and respectable to a degree that would have been unimaginable in her party-girl years, burned through the Harriman fortune, prompting her late husband's disgruntled heirs to file a series of lawsuits accusing her of being a "faithless fiduciary." Always a brass-knuckle fighter, she made headlines with a barrage of ironic countersuits - against the family whose name elevated her to Democratic doyenne, the Wall Street brokerage that provided her wealth, and the advisers who had guided her every move." "At each stage of Pamela's life, newspapers and magazines recounted her public exploits and amplified her legend. The private moments were equally indelible: playing bezique late at night with Winston Churchill, enlisting Dwight Eisenhower to help in the kitchen at her officers' club during World War II, presiding over lavish dinners at the Riviera estate of Gianni Agnelli, fixing chicken hash at midnight for Leland Hayward and his Broadway stars, talking one-on-one with Bill Clinton in the Oval Office."--Jacket
For love of politics : Bill and Hillary Clinton : the White House years by Sally Bedell Smith( Book )

7 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in English and Chinese and held by 987 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During their eight years in the White House, Bill and Hillary Clinton worked together more closely than the public ever knew. Their intertwined personal and professional lives had far-reaching consequences--for politics, domestic policy, and international affairs--and their marital troubles became a national soap opera. Based on access to scores of Clinton insiders--cabinet officers, top administration officials, close personal friends--and analysis of previously unavailable private papers, this is the first book to explain the dynamics of their relationship, showing that they are two halves of a unique whole and that it is impossible to understand one Clinton without factoring in the other. Smith examines the origins of an unconventional copresidency, explains the impact of the Clintons' tensions as well as their talents, and offers intimate scenes from the marriage, with new details and insights into how a passion for politics sustained Bill and Hillary through one crisis after another.--From publisher description
Prince Charles : the passions and paradoxes of an improbable life by Sally Bedell Smith( Book )

10 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 936 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Prince Charles is the oldest heir to the British throne in more than three hundred years. This biography -- the product of four years of research and hundreds of interviews with palace officials, former girlfriends, spiritual gurus, and more -- is filled with fresh insights into Charles's life, in and out of the public eye. It begins with his lonely childhood, in which he struggled to live up to his father's expectations and sought companionship from the Queen Mother and his great-uncle Lord Mountbatten. It follows him through difficult years at school, his early love affairs, his intellectual quests, his entrepreneurial pursuits, and his intense search for spiritual meaning. It tells of the tragedy of his marriage to Diana; his eventual reunion with his true love, Camilla; and his relationship with William, Kate, Harry, and his grandchildren. Ranging from his glamorous palaces to his country homes, from his globe-trotting travels to his local initiatives, Smith shows how Prince Charles possesses a fiercely independent spirit and yet has spent more than six decades waiting for his destined role. His life is dictated by protocol, yet he often struggles to obey it. He seeks influence and authority, yet he lives perpetually in the shadow of his mother and the beloved next generation of royals. Smith lays bare the contradictions of a man who is more complicated, tragic, and compelling than we knew, until now
