Description

Praise for Cond� Nast

"In her new biography, Susan Ronald describes [Nast's] ambitions and excesses, and the simultaneously fashionable and intellectual world he inhabited." --The New Republic

"Groundbreaking...This big, glittering book provides a full and human portrait of Cond� Nast. Lively, detailed descriptions of the early decades of the 20th century complete the setting of Nast's life story." --Christian Science Monitor

"Ronald's account succeeds as a social history of this fizzy time as she documents the interconnected worlds covered by Vogue and Vanity Fair -- fashion, high society, literature, the arts and entertainment -- from writers Dorothy Parker and Robert Benchley of the Algonquin Round Table to New York socialites won over by Nast's charm offensive." --Newsday

"With her breezy, gossipy style, Ronald brings to life the story of the influential American publisher and his magazines." --Library Journal

"[Ronald] does an exceptional job of integrating the story of Nast's personal fortunes and misfortunes and the lives of those he sought to refine and educate." --Booklist

"The thoroughly researched story of Cond� Nast...a highly flattering biography of an important figure in American publishing." --Kirkus Reviews

"Ronald writes in a vivid, sparkling, amused style...and revels in the era's repartee, clothes and gossip. ...her evocation of the vibrant scene around [Nast] will keep readers entertained." --Publishers Weekly

Praise for A Dangerous Woman

"Energetic...Ronald's group portrait is breath-taking and quite modern." --New York Times Book Review

"A lively picture of the world in which Florence moved, with all its intricate financial shenanigans, rivalrous investors and glittering social occasions." --Wall Street Journal

"Ronald traces Gould's amoral life and high-flying times...elegant and beautiful, she used sex and charm as her currency, trading them for favors and luxuries that let her sail through the war years unscathed." --New York Post
