The Duchess


I was surprised by how much I appreciated Andrew Lownie's "Traitor King." I really wasn't expecting to learn as much from it as I did. I think that's what eventually led me to read Caroline Blackwood's account of what happened to Wallis Simpson after the Duke of Windsor's death and her encounter with the imperious and volatile Maître Blum, Simpson's one-time lawyer, friend (?), and gatekeeper.


  1. Yes, it does sound interesting.

  2. Ahora llevo un tiempo, que no leo nada, cuando la lectura ha sido, desde muy joven, mi gran pasión.
