Finally the book that would "ruin a repu-ta-tion.' Oh goodie.'

What's ON Your Mind
"When two dearest close friends, after reading an earlier draft, cautioned that if published, it would ruin my repu-ta-tion, I restrained myself from saying, 'Oh goodie!' GV


Just Launched OBSESSION:An Erotic Tale. Diane Von Furstenberg hosted friends at the signing. Stellar crowd. Read the NYTIMES review here.

"I do think all art is autobiographical, and I do think I know quite a bit about women. I don’t know anything about men.” GV

"In her new novel, Gloria Vanderbilt has created a remarkable tapestry of human passion--an interior world of highly charged erotic mysteries that teasingly suggest, but ever elude, decoding. OBSESSION is a poetic tale on the nature of possession and obsession." (Joyce Carol Oates )

Ona had"a wonderful quality of oriental objectivity about life." GV

Gorgeous Tina Brown of the Daily Beast
"Warmth and zest and cheekiness...OBSESSION is erotica even your grandmother can love." The Daily Beast

"Writing about work and writing about sex are probably the two hardest things-if- I'm still doing it when I'm 85, I'll be very grateful." SR

AC-proud son
"At 85, whatever she wants to write is fine with me.”

  1. I've been reading about this and I say GV, YOU GO GIRL! How radiant she looks. Just goes to show you that you never know how the later chapters in one's own book will be written. She exemplifies survival with grace and passion. She has my profound admiration.

  2. Blimey, I didn't realise Gloria V was still alive. I had some of her jeans in the 80s. She only has a slight look now of having been exhumed. Oh hush my mouth.

  3. Dear,
    This is a lovely follow-up to your other story. Gloria looks good to an 80 year old. BCT
