Other Books by Deborah C. Pollack:
“A skilled historian and imaginative writer, Deborah C. Pollack has replaced half-truths and prejudices with a complete, exhaustively-researched biography of Marie Boozer’s life."
--Alexander Moore, historian of South Carolina
"Bad Scarlett is a meticulously researched and engagingly written biography of Marie Boozer. Like the fictional Scarlett O'Hara, Marie was a stunning beauty whose good looks and vivacious personality charmed all the men who met her. Despite her beauty, charm, and noble marriage, not everyone admired Marie. ...Pollack finds the role that journalists, novelists, and historians of her native state played in denigrating Marie's character and perpetuating falsehoods about her actions and whereabouts especially intriguing."
Amy Thompson McCandless, Dean of the Graduate School, College of Charleston, from her review in South Carolina Historical Magazine, January 2018
"We’ve never selected a book as a season highlight, but Pollack’s book is so readable, comprehensive and informative that it deserves the distinction. The Florida art historian and Palm Beach art dealer’s book, released by Pelican Publishing, is the first to concentrate on the town’s visual arts history." Jan Sjostrom,
Palm Beach Daily News
“Deborah Pollack’s latest magnum opus, Palm Beach Visual Art, is elegant, scholarly, and most significant.”
Molly Charland, Director
of Education at the Society
of the Four Arts
"Deborah C. Pollack, a gifted writer, art historian, and art dealer has provided readers with Vintage Miami Beach Glamour: Celebrities and Socialites in the Heyday of Chic [The History Press], a penetrating look into the … high society world of the Beach. Pollack draws on the written insights of the urbane, charismatic French count [George Le Pelley du Manoir] to examine and explain the evolution of the famed resort through the activities and relationships, sometimes scandalous, often fraught, of its wealthiest, most entitled visitors whose ranks ranged from Winston Churchill to Elizabeth Taylor. Heretofore, we knew of their presence primarily through society and gossip columns. But the count’s written observations—some appearing in newsletters and magazines—bring their lives (and his) in the winter playground into sharp relief. ... Further, the author’s judicious employment of photographs, especially those of these reclusive visitors, embellishes her rich narrative."
