I am very excited to announce the Eye Prefer Paris Book of the Month selection for April, The Price of Illusion, A Memoir by Joan Juliet Buck.
Joan Juliet Buck, the only child of larger-than-life film producer Jules Buck, was born into a world of make-believe. Her childhood was a whirlwind of famous faces: John Huston, Peter O’Toole, Lauren Bacall, Federico Fellini and many more; ever-changing home addresses: London, Paris, Cannes, Los Angeles; and the unspoken lesson that appearances mattered more than reality. When Joan became the first and only American woman ever to fill the coveted position of Editor in Chief of Paris Vogue, she quickly became a force in the cult of fashion and beauty. Her job gave her the means to recreate for her aging father, now a widower, the life he’d enjoyed during his high-flying years – a splendid illusion of glamour and luxury. But such illusions cannot be sustained indefinitely, and they always come at a cost.
I can’t wait to dive into The Price of Illusion especially the chapters about her experience as the editor of French Vogue.
How did you enjoy Mad Enchantment: Claude Monet and the Painting of the Water Lilies
It was such a fascinating history of the time, WWI and the perils that Monet suffered through but ultimately triumphed with the water lily series of paintings.
I would love your comments and feedback and who ever writes the first comment about Mad Enchantment will receive a free copy of The Price of Illusion.
