Her father was C.W. Post, the breakfast food magnate. Her four husbands included E.F. Hutton, and Joseph Davies, the US Ambassador to Stalin's Soviet Union. Her circle of friends ran the gamut from Flo Ziegfeld and Billie Burke to the Duke and Duchess of Windsor. Her niece was that poor little rich girl Barbara Hutton, and her youngest daughter was the film actress Dina Merrill. In American Empress author Nancy Rubin chronicles nine decades of American history as lived and influenced by one of this country's most dazzling and formidable woman.
