This unsatisfying sequel to her Once upon a Time covers Gloria's life from age 17 to roughly her early 30s (documenting time's passage is a problem throughout). Vanderbilt is seen against two dominant husbands: first the abusive Pat De Cicco, whom she feared; then the legendary Leopold Stokowski, whom she adored. The unsophisticated and often awkward writing style that was acceptable in the book about her childhood does not work in this volume, and her journey to self-confidence and independence is long and uninterestingly told. The book will appeal to readers addicted to celebrity biographies. Literary Guild alternate. Rebecca Sturm, Northern Kentucky Univ. Lib., Highland Heights
