A new edition in the freshly designed “Pushkin Blues” series.
Intimate portrait of the woman behind the world-famous perfume.
The perfect gift for fashion-lovers, Francophiles and anyone interested in the iconic Coco Chanel.
Coco Chanel was on Time magazine’s list of the 100 most influential people of the 20th century.
“It’s an interesting memoir because it’s all about what she thinks not what she did.” - David Patrick Columbia, The New York Social Diary
“Morand was a citizen of the world, with a sharp eye and a neat turn of phrase.” - The Tablet
“This enchanting, tiny book is the closest anyone can get to a face-to-face with Coco. It’s written in her voice (’that voice that gushed forth from her mouth like lava’) and in her words (’those words that crackled like dried vines’), and though it’s full of lies, omissions and contradictions, there’s enough raw truth in it to reflect the extraordinary woman who was Chanel, even though glimpsed shard by shard in a broken mirror.” - The Spectator
“Paul Morand recaptures a WWII-era conversation between the author and the fashion icon.” -Publisher’s Weekly
“Reads beautifully…this enchanting book is the closest anyone can get to a face-to-face with Coco…written in her voice and in her words.” - The Spectator
“Morand was the all-round aesthete.” - Nicholas Lezard, Guardian
