I'm about 40% through this book, and am throughly enjoying it. 

From the publisher: Some of My Lives: A Scrapbook Memoir is an informal story of an unusually full life, remarkable for its vividness and diversity of experience ... Through Rosamond Bernier's stories of her encounters with some of the twentieth century's great artists and musicians — including Picasso, Matisse, Giacometti, Max Ernst, Louise Bourgeois, Aaron Copland, Leonard Bernstein, Simon Rattle, and colorful individuals such as Malcolm Lowery and Karl Lagerfeld ... The result is a multi-faceted self-portrait of a life informed and surrounded by the arts. It is pithy, hilarious, and wise — a rewarding chronicle of many lives fully lived. 

It's also a really inspiring story of taking the life you were born into, and turning it into something wonderful through wit, charm, and tenacity.  Worth reading for sure.
