In this book, the legendary film actress writes that to “lose your prejudices, you must travel.” If you must stay at home, might we suggest this book of Marlene Dietrich aphorisms instead. With equal parts Teutonic good sense and frivolous Hollywood glamour, the film legend presents her opinions, favorite recipes, beauty advice, epigrams, interpretations of the Zodiac, and much more. Organized alphabetically, the book distills Dietrich’s philosophy with blurbs on “Academy Award,” “high fashion,” and “Albert Einstein,” and much more.
"Once a woman has forgiven a man, she must not reheat his sins for breakfast.”
