Life of the Party : Biography of Pamela Digby Churchill Hayward Harriman
Pamela Churchill Harriman has had three husbands and many male admirers, married Americans being her forte. Her first husband, Randolph Churchill, proposed the day after they met, when she was 18. The marriage was a disaster, and at 20 she had a wartime fling with the wealthy American diplomat, Averill Harriman, 30 years her senior. Many liaisons later, her high-society life reached a climax when she became US Ambassador in Paris. In 1991 Christopher Ogden was appointed by Pamela Harriman to ghost her autobiography. The arrangement was abandoned, and this unauthorized biography is the result.
