Description: The flowering years of a striking woman whose private life was as intriguing and spectacular as her public life.

Clare Boothe Luce was the woman who had everything and had to fight for all of it -- except for her polished brilliance and beauty. This intimate, authoritative, beautifully executed biography traces her true origins and childhood through the years when her intelligence and overriding ambition began to shape a career that would bring her to the fore in almost everything she did.

She married money, and when that marriage intensely disappointed her, she left and began a career, first in magazines. She became the editor of Vanity Fair -- where the managing editor may have committed suicide over her -- then emerged as a controversially successful playwright with The Women.

Sylvia Morris is the first writer to have exclusive access to Clare Boothe Luce's private papers, including unfinished manuscripts, autobiographical novels, letters, and her private diary, which was codemarked to indicate whether she had slept with a man mentioned that day. This detailed, rich narrative ends in 1943 as her marriage with Henry Luce is breaking up, and she is elected to the Congress of the United States.
