From the cover: “The symbol of Paris and the idol of the world, ‘Miss’ of the fabulous legs, the gamin-personality, the daring costumes, has been the most dazzling star of the entertainment world. Her audience, from kings in the Royal Box (and in her dressing room), to urchins in the gallery, have adored and admired her. In this frank autobiography, she tells the story of her life, of her humble beginnings as a flower-seller, and of her years of hard work and struggle which brought her to the pinnacle of success. She talks intimately of the famous people she knew, and reveals herself again as a great artiste, and a fascinating woman. But these memoirs are more than the life of one woman, however famous. They are a colourful tapestry of Edwardian, late Victorian and present-day Paris and London society. A unique collection of photographs brings back all the glamour and evokes all the nostalgia of these years.”
