The career of Marlene Dietrich has spanned more than half a century to include films, recordings and radio, stage and television performances throughout the world. The public figure whose first or last name alone can conjure up instant recognition is a status attained by very few. That it should be accompanied by respect, admiration and even adoration is rarer still. In this edition Marlene offers her unique blend of wit, a sometimes mordant humor, sensitivity and acute observations of the world as she has known and, to some extent, shaped it. By blending the absolutely practical, (see EATING, MILK, MATERNITY BLUES), with her whimsical, poetic and sometimes moving observations, (see HEMINGWAY, RICHARD BURTON, JUDY GARLAND, THE CAMERA), Dietrich creates in yet another field that special magic with which she has held the world enthralled for decades.

This book is written with wit and wisdom, generosity and skepticism. With a dose of glamour and a soup ladle, Ms. Dietrich charms us from afar while teaching us how to dress on a budget, prepare excellent boiled fish, and how to maintain some privacy in an ever public world.
Managing to be both serious and sardonic, this citizen of the world takes us on a journey through her very personal ABC's of life and it's worth the ride.
