Them by Francine du Plessix Gray
Them: Book summary and reviews of Them by Francine du Plessix Gray
At the height of their fame, Alexander Liberman and Tatiana du Plessix Gray were the grandest power couple in the New York City fashion world, gifted Russian émigrés who consorted with Dali and Dietrich and told American women how to look, where to travel, and what to read. As told by their daughter, the distinguished writer Francine du Plessix Gray, their saga combines romance, glamour, and pathos. Their adulation for success was as obsessive as their fierce, neurotic love for each other, and they treated everyone else - including Francine - with ruthless opportunism. Them is a work of Tolstoyan emotional power as well as a brilliant social history of its subjects' age.
"Starred Review. Rich with history of early to mid-20th-century design and publishing, this memoir stands as an instructive model of how to write a difficult story honestly." - PW
