About the Author:

Anne Conover, a Stanford University graduate, now lives in Washington, D.C., where she has held editor/writer positions with the U.S. Information Agency, Johns Hopkins University Press and The Library of Congress. As a freelancer, she contributes frequently to major U.S. newspapers and magazines; is the author of several womens biographies.

From Publishers Weekly:

This admiring, undiscriminating biography by a freelance writer breathlessly follows the career of the American beauty who invented the brassiere to wear at her New York society debut in 1910. Divorced from an alcohol-prone husband by whom she had two children, Mary Phelps Jacob (1892-1970) married Harry Crosby, who gave her the name Caresse and with whom she lived profligately in Paris, wrote poetry and published Joyce, Eliot and Pound in her Black Sun Press. After Harry killed himself and his girlfriend in 1929, Caresse, "always partial to titles," never ceased her quest for adventure and numerous lovers. She ran a gallery of modern art in wartime Washington, published a cultural magazine, espoused the cause of world citizenship, and later, as "principessa" of Roccasinibalda, a 72-room ruined castle outside Rome, entertained young literati for whom, with limited funds, she "could make a Renaissance meal out of a package of soup and a poetry reading."
