More About The Price of Illusion by Joan Juliet Buck
 
 
 
Overview
From Joan Juliet Buck, former editor-in-chief of Vogue Paris and "one of the most compelling personalities in the world of style" (New York Times) comes her dazzling, compulsively readable memoir: a fabulous account of four decades spent in the creative heart of London, New York, Los Angeles, and Paris--"If you loved The Devil Wears Prada, you'll adore The Price of Illusion" (Elle).

Born into a world of make-believe as the daughter of a larger-than-life film producer, Joan Juliet Buck's childhood was a whirlwind of famous faces, ever-changing home addresses, and a fascination with the shiny surfaces of things. When Joan became the first and only American woman to fill Vogue Paris's coveted position of Editor in Chief, she had the means to recreate for her aging father, now a widower, the life he'd enjoyed during his high-flying years, a splendid illusion of glamorous excess that could not be sustained indefinitely.

The Price of Illusion is a "relentlessly candid and often absorbing account of a complex life spent in and out of the fashion spotlight" (Kirkus Reviews). She chronicles this journey in beautiful and at times heartbreaking prose, taking the reader through the wild parties and the fashion, the celebrities and creative geniuses as well as love, loss, and the loneliness of getting everything you thought you wanted and finding it's not what you'd imagined. While Joan's story is unique, her journey toward self-discovery is refreshing and universal.
