Bette Midler On Why She Took Off For A Year:

Bette Midler On Why She Took Off For A Year:”Everything happened so fast,” she said. “There was a lot of pushing and shoving, people grabbing at me, grabbing at the show I had worked two years with only two weeks off, appearing in a lot of strange places hotel lobbies, bus stops, shopping centers. Two years after I started I was playing The Palace and there was a lot of heavy breathing. I had no temper left and I was snapping at people, the way I always do when I am tired. So I just took off. I went to Paris.” (Charleston Gazette, January 16, 2016) Read More

Miss M’s Cultural Corner: The Sun King

2017-02-10_5-19-54

The Sun King is a dazzling double portrait of Louis XIV and Versailles, the opulent court from which he ruled. With characteristic élan, Nancy Mitford reconstructs the daily life of king and courtiers during France’s golden age, offering vivid sketches of the architects, artists, and gardeners responsible for the creation of the most magnificent palace Europe had yet seen. Mitford lays bare the complex and deadly intrigues in the stateroom and the no less high-stakes power struggles in the bedroom. At the center of it all is Louis XIV himself, the demanding, mercurial, but remarkably resilient sovereign who guided France through nearly three quarters of the Grand Siècle. Read More
