Reflected Glory

This extensively research biography, based on interviews with 400 sources, shares the life of Pamela Churchill Harriman—the grand daughter-in-law of Winston Churchill and a woman who consistently managed to be where the action was.

Premier biography Sally Bedell Smith tells the explosive true story of the woman behind the public façade.

From her early years as a British debutante to her last days as the U.S. Ambassador to France, Harriman dealt with more powerful figures than nearly anyone else in the twentieth century, and in the process, she achieved her own fame in their reflected glory.

Salley Bedell Smith is the author of the bestselling In All His Glory: The Life of William S. Paley. Formerly a reporter for The New York Times, she is a contributing editor to Vanity Fair. She lives in Washington, D.C., with her husband and three children.
