Product description

Review

Praise for A Dangerous Woman:

"Energetic...Ronald's group portrait is breath-taking and quite modern." --New York Times Book Review

"A lively picture of the world in which Florence moved, withall its intricate financial shenanigans, rivalrous investors and glitteringsocial occasions... Florence's great talent--along with her business acumen, hersingle-mindedness and her refusal to be burdened by doubts or scruples--was toinvent and reinvent herself to blend in with and exploit every place and everytime." --Wall Street Journal

"Ronald provides an unvarnished account of the life of avant-garde socialite Florence Lacaze Gould, whose dazzling, gilded lifestyle belied her dark side as a libertine, Nazi collaborator, and war profiteer . . .History lovers will welcome this impressive book about a captivating, flawed woman." --Publishers Weekly

"Drawing on many published sources, newspaper reports of Gould's scandalous escapades, and Gould's often fraudulent testimony when she was interrogated as a Nazi collaborator, Ronald conveys the glittering surface of Gould's life. .... A light, lively narrative about a singular, narcissistic woman." --Kirkus

Praise for Hitler's Art Thief:

"[A] riveting portrait of Gurlitt, who detested the Nazis, and stole from them, but did their bidding in the name of 'saving modern art'." --The New Yorker

"Ronald situates Gurlitt's life and career amid the turmoil of Weimar Germany and then the evolution of Nazi art-looting campaigns from the late 1930s to the end of World War II, [adding] many new details about Gurlitt's dealings." --The Wall Street Journal

"Susan Ronald tells the back story of what may be the most startling art-world bust in modern history." --USA Today

"One man's extraordinary career of thievery . . . an exhaustively researched and well written book that has a cautionary tale for all of us." --Forbes

"Outstanding. . . Hitler's Art Thief brilliantly examines the motivating forces, both internal and external, that led Hildebrand Gurlitt to go work for the Führer." --The Jerusalem Post

"Another chapter in the unfolding story of Holocaust art and its provenance, Hitler's Art Thief provides the background of a story that came to light when more than a thousand works of art, valued at more than $1.35 billion, were found in a tiny Munich apartment." --The Jewish Week

About the Author

Born and raised in the United States, SUSAN RONALD has lived in England for more than twenty-five years. She is the author of seven books, including A Dangerous Woman, Hitler's Art Thief, Heretic Queen, The Pirate Queen, and Shakespeare's Daughter.
