Born to great wealth yet kept a virtual prisoner by the custody battle that raged between her very proper aunt and her self-absorbed, beautiful mother, Gloria Vanderbilt grew up in special world. Stunningly beautiful herself, yet insecure with a touch of wildness, she set out at an early age to find romance. And find it she did. There were affairs with the likes of Howard Hughes, Bill Paley and Frank Sinatra, to name a few, and one-night stands, which she writes about with delicacy and humour, including one with the young Marlon Brando. legendary conductor Leopold Stokowski; who kept his inner most secrets from her; the film director Sidney Lumet; and finally writer Wyatt Cooper, the love of her life. Now, in an irresistible memoir that is at once ruthlessly forthright, supremely stylish, full of gossip and deeply touching, Gloria Vanderbilt writes at last about the subject on which she has hitherto been silent, the men in her life. This is the candid and captivating account of a life that has kept gossip writers speculating for years, as well as Gloria's own intimate description of growing up, living, marrying and loving in the glare of the limelight.
