About this title


An affectionate, intimate biography by Madame Helena Rubinstein's personal assistant that captures "Madame's" unbounded energy and spunk such as her buying carloads of African sculpture or kicking an inatteneive employee in the ankle to make him listen, keeping her competitor's at bay, and dispensing homely advice, particularly on beauty. Rubinstein's propensity for crisis, strife, and inevitably, farce make this irreverent but affectionate biography the purset diversion and just a fun read.
