really liked it

An enlightening book, very well researched and written. I learned more about the social politics in France pre WWII than I had ever known before and how that affected the France in WWII.

Ms Chanel was a genius and self made woman, and nothing here distracts from that, but it does show a portrait of a woman whose own choices were not allways the best. Found that to be genuine, as opposed to Coco's one fictions that she put out. (Who doesn't love our fictions more than our truths?)

I was shocked at the role of the Catholic church in spreading antisemitism and think they have a lot to answer for. Had they not been hate mongering, perhaps the Nazi's treatments of Jews would have been stopped before 6 million inocents had to die.
