Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

But as soon as I opened “Living Artfully: At Home with Marjorie Merriweather Post,” I could hear my pulse pounding. Because this woman not only had mountains of money, she used it to create her idea of a beautiful life.—Jesse Kornbluth, Headbutler.com

While her fortune was vast, so was her spirit—she excelled at generosity and thoughtfulness, qualities that never go out of style.—Charlotte Moss, The Wall Street Journal

It is a world of footmen and grounds­keepers, of personal chefs and women who would unpack and iron a guest’s clothing— Lonnae O’Neal Parker, The Washington Post

Post collected Sioux moccasins and Fabergé enamels while treating pets royally— Eve M. Kahn, The New York Times

The outgoing, glamorous Post, who inherited her family's Postum Cereal Company, which is now part of Kraft Inc., ran her estate very much like a business -- specifically a hotel, welcoming people from all walks of life, all the time— Doug Rule, Metro Weekly

A showcase of Post’s glamorous day-to-day life during her heyday, and the behind-the-scenes work that made it all happen— William O’Connor, The Daily Beast

Gives a fascinating insight into the glamorous life enjoyed in her three stylish homes…She sounds great fun.— Tim Forrest, The Lady
