|Summary, etc.:|| "Brown's life story-- a classic American rags-to-riches tale-- is just as juicy as her controversial books. In this...biography, the writer and reporter Gerri Hirshey traces Brown's path from deep in the Arkansas Ozarks to her wild single years in Los Angeles, from the New York magazine world to her Hollywood adventures with her film producer husband. Along the way she became the highest-paid female ad copywriter on the West Coast, and transformed Hearst's failing literary magazine, Cosmopolitan, into the female-oriented global juggernaut it is today."-- Provided by publisher.
