From Tallulah Bankhead to Joan Crawford to the Kennedys and Madonna, the ultimate insider, Liz Smith has hobnobbed, air-kissed, and lunched with just about everybody who's been anybody over the last half-century--and then rushed to tell the world all about it. Now, in this candid, down-to-earth autobiography, she tells all about herself, and does it with the kind of style and warmth that has made her one of the most widely read columnists in history. Liz Smith wasn't always famous, and in Natural Blonde she revals how a young woman from rural Texas came to New York hell-bent on making something of her life. From her salad days as a small-time reporter and proofreader to her triumphs at the Daily News, Newsday, New York Post and her 1995 Emmy for reporting, Liz tells what it is really like to be seen and heard by millions of people every day. One of the most quoted people of our time, she offers a rare, private peek into the real person behind the witty quips and media coverage. Certainly one of the most eagerly anticipated autobiographies in years, Natural Blonde will give Liz Smith readers the item they've been waiting for--the ultimate inside scoop from the "Grande Dame of Dish."

Mary Elizabeth Smith grew up in Fort Worth, Texas, as a tomboy in a middle class family that survived the Depression. She grew into a star-struck teenager determined to meet famous people and make something special of her life someday. Indeed she did; she became the highest paid "print" journalist in the world. Liz Smith has a marvelous sense of storytelling, and with warmth, fervor, and a sense of humor she lays it all out . . . her marriages and divorces, her early reporter years, her rise to superstardom, and the hundreds of "famous people" she met along the way. Details of her legendary meeting with Frank Sinatra, jet-set parties with Liz and Richard, and countless other experiences are revealed in candid detail.
