Inhaltsangabe: Madam Wellington Koo was born with an ivory chopstick in her mouth--as a child her family moved to Java where her father built an industrial empire as well as an unacknowledged dynasty--18 concubines who produced 42 children. Thus early on she was exposed to the second class citizeness/ship of all Chinese women of that era--also to a love of ""marvelous outfits,"" jewels and even gambling. But her person was nothing to gamble with and she was carefully protected and married off to widowed diplomat Wellington Koo for whom she served as hostess/sometime wife through the years as ""Number One Lady of China."" She still considers herself Number One Madam Wellington Koo even though this truly prominent diplomat (she acknowledges his brilliance--never found him dashing) married someone else after she left him. She did bear his children with whom she is still on very close terms but strangely enough she writes more about the Pekingese she bred and loved and will be talking to again after her ""canine children"" are reborn. She is also devoted to the occult. There are moments in this modern world when her pearls-before-roast pork elegance is irritating: during WW II she airily said ""I know there is a war on but we don't have to live like this.? They didn't. But one must remember that she was definitely the privileged product of a supremely wealthy social stratum, however inured she seems to have been to the only too real events that were taking place outside the cushioned sanctuaries she found--after China, Paris, London, Washington. Still there will be women to enjoy all those trunks of furs and jewels in their own sedan chair.
