KIRKUS REVIEW

The evidence, for and against, in a biography of that de luxe careerist, Clare Luce, elegant, energetic, effective, in all her extraordinary facility as editor, playwright, foreign correspondent, and lastly Congresswoman, and secondarily in her marital progress from money and George Brokaw to power and Henry Luce. No venom here, tribute to her beauty, her wit, her flair for opportunity; but no evasion either of her hokum, her glibness, her Washington fiascos with the Globaloney boomerang and the Presidential gaffe, and -- more basically, her love of self and lack of heart.
