When she died in 2014 at age 103, Bunny Mellon was among the last representatives of a generation of multifaceted Americans, a woman at home in the worlds of politics, diplomacy, art, and fashion. A self-taught gardener, Mellon redesigned the White House Rose Garden for her friends, the Kennedys, but she was also a world class bibliophile and an astute judge of modern art. Mellon was notoriously private, and Meryl Gordon obtained the cooperation of Mellon's family and access to thousands of pages of her letters to create this portrait of a talented American original.

"Gordon illuminates the virtues and contradictions of socialite Bunny Mellon in this entertaining tell-all chronicle.... A juicy behind-the-scenes tale of American aristocracy."—Publisher's Weekly
