Biography & Memoir • 6 hrs. • Abridged • © 2000

Mary Elizabeth Smith grew up in Fort Worth, Texas, as a tomboy in a middle class family that survived the Depression. She grew into a star-struck teenager determined to meet famous people and make something special of her life someday. Indeed she did; she became the highest paid “print” journalist in the world. Liz Smith has a marvelous sense of storytelling, and with warmth, fervor, and a sense of humor she lays it all out . . . her marriages and divorces, her early reporter years, her rise to superstardom, and the hundreds of “famous people” she met along the way. Details of her legendary meeting with Frank Sinatra, jet-set parties with Liz and Richard, and countless other experiences are revealed in candid detail.
