"De Vilmorin was a noted beauty whose lovers included Antoine de Exupery and Orson Welles; her glittering fable of passion and deception centres on a pair of diamond earrings. To make it even more of a gem, Madame de has an afterword by John Julius Norwich, whose father Duff Cooper was its translator. Cooper was one of Vilmorin's lovers while serving as British Ambassador to Paris... So this tiny volume offers not just a story, but the story behind the story."
