THE MONA LISA STRATAGEM The Art of Women, Age, and Power

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Harriet Rubin

Personal Growth • 5 hrs. • Abridged • © 2007

Using the lives of figures like Georgia O’Keefe, Eleanor Roosevelt, and Gertrude Stein, the author explains how women over 45 can wield incredible influence and get whatever they want—including younger lovers. An expert on Machiavelli, she understands how social energy, status, and enjoyment evade most older women, but offers da Vinci’s Mona Lisa as an example of how the ordinary can become powerful—with the right strategies. Harriet Rubin’s silky voice is loaded with the very power she promotes. The urgency of her vocal presence is arresting but does not upstage the strength of her arguments. A feature of this production is a disc with a viewable appendix that attributes the many fascinating quotations. T.W.
