Much more than just a hostess, Susan Mary Alsop (1918-2004), aka ‘the second lady of Camelot,” was a descendent of John Jay, wife of the journalist Joe Alsop, and the doyenne of Georgetown society for four decades. In this lively recounting by Paris-based biographer de Margerie, Alsop’s life was inseparable from those of the major political, intellectual, and social figures of her time, from Churchill to Garbo to JFK and Kissinger.
