Life of the Party Summary

Life of the Party: Biography of Pamela Digby Churchill Hayward Harriman by Christopher Ogden

The unauthorized biography of one of this century's most remarkable and glamorous women - Pamela Harriman, currently US ambassador to France. Perhaps best known for shepherding the Deocratic party through its political exile during the Reagan/Bush era, Pamela Harriman used her third husband Avrell's fortune and her own charm and intelligence to help propel a grateful Bill Clinton into the White House. But well before her recent rise to prominence, Harriman already had an international reputation. The vivacious daughter of a rural English baron, at 19 she married the only son of Winston Churchill and played a small part in the unfurling of history, while living with the Prime Minister during World War II. Her second marriage to celebrated producer Leland Hayward put her at thr crossroads of Hollywood and Broadway throughout the 1960s. Married to statesman Harriman in 1971 - 30 years after a wartime affair - she dealt with Soviet, Chinese and European leaders. Along the way she had affairs with such rich and powerful men as Gianni Agnelli, Frank Sinatra and Elie de Rothschild. Derived from months of exclusive discussions with Harriman (for a proposed autobiography which was subsequently abandoned), and interviews with nearly 200 friends, relatives and critics, this is a look Harriman's extraordinary life.
