THE DUCHESS OF WINDSOR: THE UNCOMMON LIFE OF WALLIS SIMPSON., King, Greg.

Author Name    King, Greg.

Title   THE DUCHESS OF WINDSOR: THE UNCOMMON LIFE OF WALLIS SIMPSON.

Publisher    Citadel / Kensington, New York, 2003.

Seller ID   25189

556 pp, 9" H, soft cover. ISBN 0806524642 "It was the love story of the century - the king and the commoner. In December 1936, King Edward VIII abdicated the throne to marry ' the woman I love,' Wallis Warfield Simpson, a twice-divorced American who quickly became one of the twentieth century's most famous personalities, a figure of intrigue and mystery, both admired and reviled. Wrongly blamed for the abdication crisis, Wallis suffered hostility from the Royal Family and much of the world . Yet interest in her story has remained constant, resulting in a small library of biographies that convey a thinly veiled animosity toward their subject. The truth, however, is infinitely more fascinating than the shallow, pathetic portrait t h a t has often been painted. Using previously untapped sources, (the author) presents a complete and, for the first time, sympathetic portrait of the Duchess that sifts the decades of rumor and accusation to reveal the woman behind the legend. F ro m he r birth in Pennsylvania during the Gilded Age to her death in Paris in 1986, King takes the reader through a world of privilege, palaces, high society, and love with the accompaniment of hatreds, feuds, conspiracies, and lies. The cast of cha ra cte rs is vast: politicians and presidents, dictators and socialites. Twenty-four pages of (b&w) photographs reveal the life of the Duchess in all its incomparable glamour and romance." Interior - clean and tight with no previous ownership mar ks. Ex ter ior - three light creases down a concave spine. Very Good
