Description - Life Itself! by Elaine Dundy

Elaine Dundy, a New Yorker born in the 1930s, is the author of "The Dud Avocado", based on a year she spent in Paris. Here she presents her memoirs which begin in classy apartments on Park Lane before the Crash, include a wild and funny time as an actress in Paris and London, and reveal all about her disastrous marriage to theatre critic Kenneth Tynan. Her literary and theatrical circle - which included Peter Finch (about whom she later wrote a biography) and Tennesse Williams, Hemingway and Gore Vidal - is presented along with poignant remembrances of growing up in America in the 40s, and a literary and theatrical life in Paris and London.
