Words to live by, especially if you’re a writer, with pizzazz from Diana Vreeland


There’s another marvelous memoir, from the amazing Diana Vreeland, you might be interested in reading.

Her autobiography reads like a novel. This extract resonates with me because of its delicious contradiction:

“Truth is a hell of a big point with me. Now I exaggerate—always.” DV

Do I? But of course. And that’s the essence of It’s in His Kiss: truth, exaggerated…



  1. Ah but your fine novel is definitely all about the truth too…and getting down to it. 🙂
    Love DV, love her autobiography, was so happy that I saw the show at the Met all those years ago…

  2. I really love D.V. for a lot of reasons, she just seems to be squeezing every last drop out of life. It is normally close to my bedside table at home. I have been in SF for so long with none of my books, so I had to look it up online recently when I had the urge to read a bit of it.
