From the Publisher“Elsa was a huge personality who led an amazing life; she knew everyone and everyone knew her. If you relish, as I do, the stories of old Hollywood, you’ll love this book–and you might end up loving her too!”–Miriam Margolyes, actress
“Only in America could Elsa have lived the life she did. What a talent Sam Staggs is to be able to write so entertaining a book about a phenomenon.”—Robert Wagner, actor and author of Pieces of My Heart
"Elsa venit, ea vidit, ea vicit: Elsa came, she saw, she conquered. What a gal! Sam Staggs’ riveting biography of the high-priestess of the twentieth century is a real page turner. It reads like a good thriller, transporting the reader back to a time of real glamour, riveting drama, scandal, two world wars, high aristocracy, betrayal, suicide, kings and queens, and world leaders.”—HSH Principessa Rita Boncompagni Ludovisi
"Lively . . . Staggs writes in a bright, conversational style exactly suited to the worldly affairs he tells of . . . [He's] done his research, too, running down a host of the famed and unknown who knew his subject; they speak and she is among us once more."
—Wall Street Journal
