About the Author
If you don't know Solange Batsell Herter, you must have read about her. If you haven't read about her, you must have heard of her. If you've never even heard of her, you are in luck. Because you're about to meet this roman candle of a woman, in the flesh. Solange Herter was born on the same date as the Virgin Mary, and that's the last time she ever shared the spotlight. She hit the ground running, began a fabulous life, more often happening to things instead of the other way around. Hers is a tough and tender life, self-made and she's still throwing off sparks, eight decades later. If this book isn't a tell-all, we can't imagine what she left out. From her abiding friendship with Jack and Jackie Kennedy, her mother's surprising episodes with J. Edgar Hoover, becoming a seven-year-old queen of the Normandie on her first crossing of the Atlantic, her boisterous run-ins with nuns in French and American schools, tangling with Barbara Walters on National TV, winning hundreds of thousands with a throw of the dice (and quitting while she was way, way ahead), opening her own art gallery, plunging into the wild-cat real estate of post-war Canada, singing at Carnegie Hall, playing piano at Camp David, getting into the gutter with Bobby Kennedy� It's all her story, she takes you through triumph and trial and she's as honest about it as the day is long.
