Personal reminiscences of a New Haven born woman, who studied art, traveled, and specialized in people through life. Gracefully written, and will appeal to people who like the literary and theatrical memoirs. There is very little that is autobiographical, but a charming personality comes through in her contacts with the people of a glamorous and disappearing world. The human side of the great -- such it was her gift to draw out. Bernhardt, Langtry, Bismarck, Anatole France, Einstein, Rodin, Inness, Stavisky -- many others.
