Weidenfeld and Nicolson, London - first UK edition, 1982. hardcover, 9 1/2' x 6", with dust jacket. Previous owner's name to ffep. Faded gutter stain to first six pages. VERY GOOD book in VERY GOOD clipped dust jacket. Cream cloth-bound boards with gold type to spine, 52 b&w photographs (many over two pages), epilogue. Clare Boothe Luce's distinguished literary, political and diplomatic career began when she joined 'Vogue' magazine as a caption writer. Within five years she was managing editor of 'Vanity Fair'. In 1935 she married Henry R Luce, founder of 'Time' and 'Fortune', who turned Clare's concept of 'Life' magazine into reality and built the greatest magazine empire of the twentieth century. She had a blossoming literary career (as a playwright and novelist); was elected to House of Representatives; served as Ambassador to Italy; converted to Catholicism. This is her story - a witty, sharp-eyed observer of the American scene.
