Picasso's Ghost (A Love Story)by Carole Mallory
This up-and-down relationship coincided with her career as a supermodel gracing the covers of Cosmopolitan, New York
Picasso's Ghost tells the amazing true story of author, actress and model Carole Mallory, who fell in love with Picasso's son Claude as he whirled her around a Manhattan dance floor, her heart lost in the rhythm of Gloria Gaynor's "I Will Survive."
This up-and-down relationship coincided with her career as a supermodel gracing the covers of Cosmopolitan, New York Magazine, and her work in such iconic films as The Stepford Wives and Looking for Mr. Goodbar. Her adventures in Hollywood, New York and Paris with such stellar lovers as Peter Sellers,Robert de Niro, Rod Stewart, Richard Gere and Norman Mailer make for an exciting and erotic read that will make the reader cheer for Mallory's eventual happy ending.
"The blow Carole suffered, the lobotomization of her once bright and charming father, could not have been more severe. It takes more than courage to survive a horror on that scale. I suggest that she was gifted as well, as an actress and as a keen observer, too, as a potential journalist and social commentator,"

i have no contract with barnes and noble ..picasso's ghost is sold exclusively on amazon. where did you get my book
Picasso's Ghost is a story any young person who is interested in making it big in Hollywood to read this story. It touches on so many issues of living in the celebrity world, the loves and romances and relationships and how real or not real they are. There's a heartfelt honesty behind the author's words and the lessons she's learned in seeking out such people during her time. She is a tough woman, the author is. The beauty of her writing is the honesty reflected in her regrets, joys, and reflections. There's a certain vulnerability and sweetness of the author that attracted to me to her story and words. The author's best writing is ahead of her if this book is any indication.
