Very few remember her name now, but her face and figure were known to almost every living person during the Belle Epoque through the magic of photography and the newly invented medium of the common postcard. She slept with all of Europe's royalty, and woke covered in jewels. Until she lost it all. There are more than 90 years of incredible story here.
Lawrence Jay Switzer draws his inspiration from an eventful lifetime of academic achievement, exemplified by his collection of dearly-earned diplomas from the following—the deployment of television for baby sitting and primary education; the birth of Rock ‘n Roll; the beginning, tiresome duration, and conclusion of the Cold War; the apprehension and execution of Adolf Eichmann; the Cuban Missile Crisis; the assassinations of JFK, RFK, and MLK; the first steps of Man on lunar soil; the Summer of Love; Watergate; Ronald and Nancy Reagan; the AIDS epidemic; the WTC tragedy of 911, the advent of the personal computer, the cellular phone, and hand-held electronic devices of all varieties; the revolution of opera supertitles; the conquest of America by MacDonalds, Starbucks, Walmart, Gap, etc. He has created The Walt Whitman Series, and biographies of history's most famous courtesans. He also is the publisher and Creative Director of The New Knickerbocker Quarterly Magazine.
