New month, new title. I loved Swans of Fifth Avenue by Melanie Benjamin. This historical novel about NY society and scandal in the '50s had me researching all the "swans" such as Babe Paley, Slim Keith, C. Z. Guest, Gloria Guinness, and Pamela Churchill.

If you liked this book, here's a couple of older Vanity Fair articles with fascinating background on the real characters in Swans of Fifth Avenue.
