I’d Do It Again
I’d Do It Again!
-A Memoir –
Harriet Wright with Brie Austin
in I’d Do It Again author Harriet Wright’s priceless adventures began in her mid-twenties when Jimmy Durante plucked her from the waters [of the Aquacade at the 1939–40 World’s Fair] to join the first chorus line of the famed Copacabana Supper Club.
Harriet soon became part of the nightclub crowd—mentioned regularly in the most famous of the New York gossip columns. She traveled with the rich and famous, raised a son who gained his own notoriety, and had more adventures than Forrest Gump. I’d Do It Again! recounts her journeys to a life in Cairo, a romance in Tunisia, a weekend in jail, a six-week Caribbean escapade with Jose Ferre, and much more!
Her son Clovis, a rebellious teenager, became the youngest designer to ever win the prestigious Coty Critics Award, the fashion industry equivalent of an Oscar. His success provided Harriet with a backstage pass to the world of fashion and the trendy “in” spots, like Studio 54.
But Harriet also had her share of heartache, including the suspicious death of a husband.
I’d Do It Again! is the riveting and entertaining life story of a resilient woman who refuses to let life pass her by. Instead, she lives it—to its fullest extent!
