Summary
The tumultuous and heartbreaking life of a world-famous model whose riveting story of beauty, fame, passion, murder and madness in the Gilded Age captivated a nation. Her likeness appears on New York's Municipal Building, as "Miss Manhattan" and "Miss Brooklyn" outside the Brooklyn Museum, is immortalized on the Manhattan Bridge, the Frick Mansion, the New York Public Library, and the Pulitzer Fountain outside the Plaza Hotel. In gold, bronze, and stone she still graces bridges, skyscrapers, fountains, churches, monuments, and public buildings across the nation. On her fortieth birthday she was committed to an insane asylum by her mother and remained there until she died in 1996 at age 104. She is buried in an unmarked grave -- Book jacket
