Sylvia Jukes Morris talked about her book, Price of Fame: The Honorable Clare Boothe Luce, her second volume on the politician, socialite, writer, and diplomat who lived from 1903 to 1987. This book picks up the Luce story in 1943 as Clare arrives on Capitol Hill as a newly elected Republican representative from Connecticut, and continues the narrative through her time as an ambassador to Italy during the Eisenhower years and onward as she becomes a screenwriter and a grande dame of the Republican Party during the Reagan administration years. Mrs. Morris also talked about her reasons for writing this second volume, and her personal relationship with Mrs. Luce throughout the final years of her life. close
