Format: Paperback
I don't think this book was promoted very well when it was published. I just happened upon it in a used book store and picked it up because my stepmother had recently died of ovarian cancer-- and also because I'm always interested in reading about the fashion world. Tilberis sometimes came across as a bit shallow; she apparently took the whole fashion world VERY seriously, instead of viewing it with the detachment and "Well, it's a living" attitude of some fashionistas I know. Also, after describing her very long struggle to have children, which ultimately resulted in her adopting two sons, she seemed to have taken little interest in raising them; her husband pretty much was a single parent, while she lived and breathed Harper's Bazaar 24/7.
But on the whole, I really enjoyed the book, especially the insider stuff about the fashion business. I also appreciated the thorough information that Tilberis gives about detection and treatment of ovarian cancer. By the end of the book she seems resigned to dying fairly soon, but is just trying to enjoy every day that is left to her. She died within two years of the book's publication.

Another book I bought because I wanted to learn about Beatrix Miller of Queen magazine who coined the name Caroline that was later applied to a floating radio station of that name which began in the magazine offices.

I love this book. I picked it up while researching an entirely different topic but am glad I did as I found Liz's style warm, engaging, informative, and enchantingly fun at times. I loved her insider look at the fashion industry and as a former editor on a magazine staff -- loved the inside look at British Vogue. Liz's life was interesting, not extraordinary. Liz was a vibrant person, not a saint. In some ways, it's the very ordinariness of her struggles, to have children, to move up in the fashion industry world, and finally, to survive cancer that makes this book so striking. She often led a life of privilege (counting among her friends the likes of Princess Di as well as some of the greatest fashion photographers of our age) -- yet her work was not seriously important and her story is not a heavy one. In fact, in some ways her life story is effervescent -- almost lighter than air -- I mean, after all, how seriously can one take the world of fashion? Yet, fashion was Liz's passion. As was life. That's why it was so hard 1/2 way through reading this book for me to discover that the author died a couple of years after its publication. I like Liz's life -- light yet somehow meaningful at the same time. I like her sparkle, her energy, her personality. I like the fact that she left this wonderful legacy -- a memoir of her own personal journey through life, and ultimately into death, to help guide the rest of us along our way. If nothing else, Liz's legacy is to live every moment to the fullest -- a lesson we can all take to heart.

Format: Paperback
Tilberis had it all -- a high-powered job at Harper's and a loving family. But it all
came crashing down in Dec 1993 when she was diagnosed with stage III ovarian cancer. Her
surgeon assured her that she was going to make it as they "caught it in time." Unfortunately he was dead wrong. Tilberis is very open about the warning symptoms she experienced as well as the devastating side-effects of chemo and BMT. She also includes a lot of cool tidbits about the world of high-fashion which was interesting but the reason I read this was my aunt recently died from leukemia so I've been devouring every cancer book I can get my hands on. Wouldn't recommend this to cancer patients thought as it's ultimately a downer.
