About this title


"Fascinating, gossipy, entertaining. . . ."
"New York Times Book Review
They are ten outstanding women of the century. Each had an aura, including Thelma Brenner, the first great dame her daughter ever knew. Their lives were both gloriously individual and yet somehow universal. They were mighty warriors and social leaders, women of aspiration who persevered. They lived through the Great Depression and a world war. Circumstances did not defeat them. They played on Broadway and in Washington. They had glamour, style, and intelligence. They dressed up the world.
"Vivid, intimate portraits . . . a splendid tribute to ten of the century's grandest, most powerful women."
"Us "
"These women were our geishas, whispering in our ears to influence all aspects of American life."
Susan Salter Reynolds, "Los Angeles Times"
"Delectable, classy . . . a runaway hit."
Liz Smith
"An engrossing introduction to a way of life that's now extinct, for better or for worse."
"Chicago Sun-Times""
