counting the months


"What do I care if Mrs. Harrison Williams is the best dressed woman in town?" Cole Porter

When you start writing about people suddenly you are scouring ebay for photographs of them— I obsessed a bit. It's 2 months till my book is finally released, April 11th. Cecil Beaton's portrait of Mona and Harrison Williams is on the cover. Here's one of my Mona photographs, c1937- February 10, by the way! Quote: copy should read- Mrs. Harrison Williams acknowledged to be the world's best dressed woman, accompanied by William Taylor, arriving at the Colony Club in Palm Beach Fla., where they are vacationing.

Plans to be in NYC, Houston, High Point, Raleigh, and Charlotte are underway now.
