An epic memoir detailing the lives of Russian emigre and Conde Nast big wig Alex Liberman and Tatiana ("of Saxs") du Plessix Liberman written by their daughter Francine du Plessix Gray. The memoir spans 500 pages and while it is a hefty tome, the chapters move at a nice clip and draw you in. A great refresher course on WW II and a fascinating look behind the scenes of the society and cultural jet setters of the mid to late 20th century.
