Review:

Dominick Dunne Gloria Vanderbilt's romance memoir, "It Seemed Important at the Time, " is, at various points in her extraordinarily famous life, explicitly romantic, wildly revealing, and bravely honest.

Synopsis:

There were marriages to men as diverse as Paul DeCicco, who abused her; the legendary conductor Leopold Stokowski; who kept his inner most secrets from her; the film director Sidney Lumet; and finally writer Wyatt Cooper, the love of her life. Now, in an irresistible memoir that is at once ruthlessly forthright, supremely stylish, full of gossip and deeply touching, Gloria Vanderbilt writes at last about the subject on which she has hitherto been silent, the men in her life. This is the candid and captivating account of a life that has kept gossip writers speculating for years, as well as Gloria's own intimate description of growing up, living, marrying and loving in the glare of the limelight.
