Add to Wish List
The delirious 1925 Jazz-Age classic that no less an
authority than Edith Wharton called "the great American
novel." If any American fictional character of the
twentieth century seems likely to be immortal, it is
Lorelei Lee of Little Rock, Arkansas, the not-so-dumb
blonde who knew that diamonds are a girl's best friend.
Outrageous, charming, and unforgettable, she's been
portrayed on stage and screen by Carol Channing and Marilyn
Monroe and has become the archetype of the footloose, good-
hearted gold digger, with an insatiable appetite for
orchids, champagne, and precious stones. Here are
her "diaries," created by Anita Loos in the Roaring
Twenties, as Lorelei and her friend Dorothy barrel across
Europe meeting everyone from the Prince of Wales to "Doctor
Froyd"--and then back home again to marry a Main Line
millionaire and become a movie star. In this delightfully
droll and witty book, Lorelei Lee's wild antics, unique
outlook, and imaginative way with language shine.
