  1. On September 21, a new Coco Chanel biography was released here in the US. It is called "Coco Chanel: The Legend and the Life" by Justine Picardie. Here is a link to the book on Amazon:

    http://www.amazon.com/Coco-Chanel-Legend-Justine-Picardie/dp/0061963852/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1285458323&sr=1-4

    I just started reading it and I was wondering if anyone else was? I'm only a couple of chapters in, but so far it is good. It is different than the Axel Madsen bio. It tries to elaborate on different versions of stories that Coco told while she was alive (and sort out the facts from the fiction). It has more photos than I expected and some of them I hadn't seen before.

    I thought that I would start a "book club" thread so those who are reading it can discuss.

  3. I bought it also. Starting soon.

  8. I'm interested in reading it. I'm just finishing the book I'm reading now so perhaps I can run pick it up today. Note, I read my books slowly as most often I just read a few pages before I sleep.
