PRICE OF FAME: THE HONORABLE CLARE BOOTHE LUCE (Random House, on sale June 17) by Sylvia Jukes Morris continues the mesmerizing story of the beautiful, brilliant, ambitious, yet often tormented, trailblazer who, in her eighty-four years, achieved success in an extraordinary variety of arenas: literary, theatrical, political, spiritual, social and diplomatic.
