This started out so good but then...once some of the chapters started being written in sort of an interview form...I got...well...I got bored! So I read the last third of it without really loving it. I enjoyed the present day chapters more than the in the past ones. I guess it is sort of a "factional" book about Gladys Spencer-Churchill who was real and quite odd! She did the first Pond's Cold Cream ad but she also had paraffin injected into her nose...which apparently dropped into her chin...and left her with a distorted face! I can't even believe I know this but I googled her!
