American Lady PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

American Lady free pdf A descendent of John Jay, Susan Mary Alsop was an American aristocrat whose first marriage gave her full access to post-war diplomatic social life in Paris, where she met the love of her life. Her circle of friends included Winston Churchill, Isaiah Berlin, Evelyn Waugh, and Christian Dior, among other luminaries. During John F. Kennedy's presidency after she had married the powerful journalist Joe Alsop, her Washington home was a gathering place for everyone of importance, including Katharine Graham, Robert McNamara, and Henry Kissinger. Featuring an introduction by Susan Mary Alsop's goddaughter Frances FitzGerald, "American Lady" is a fascinating chronicle of a woman who witnessed, as Nancy Mitford once said, "history on the boil."
