Synopsis: Carmel Snow lived larger than life - she dressed to perfection, was fond of dramatic pronouncements, and had a savage passion for discovering creative genius. It is fitting, then, that her career at the helm of Harper's Bazaar forever changed the face of fashion magazine publishing. Early in the twentieth century, when the typical fashion magazine was narrowly concerned with dressing well, Snow's progressive editorial vision included art, fiction, photography and reportage. Along the way, she launched the careers of would-be legends, including Andy Warhol, Lauren Bacall, Truman Capote and Christian Dior. "A Dash of Daring" chronicles the extraordinary life of Carmel Snow on both sides of the Atlantic, beginning in nineteenth-century Ireland and continuing on to Paris, Milan and New York City, the fashion capitals of the world. Overflowing with previously untold stories of the colourful and glamorous - including Richard Avedon, Andre Leon Talley, Diana Vreeland, Virginia Woolf, Aldous Huxley, and the members of the legendary Algonquin Round Table - "A Dash of Daring" is a compelling portrait of the fashion world during a golden era.
About the Author: Penelope Rowlands is a journalist who contributed to numerous magazines, including Vogue, Architectural Digest, W, The New York Times Magazine, and ARTnews from both the United States and France. She now lives in Princeton, New Jersey.
