Part advice manual and part memoir, The Late Show
is truly an hysterical yet insightful guide to growing old, presented in candid, unyielding and often comedic form by Helen Gurley Brown. Ms. Brown selects topics that range from emotional security, marriage, money, sex, beauty, exercise, health, and work and explains her philosophy and shares personal experiences and as do several of her friends, including Diane von Furstenberg, Raquel Welch and Ali McGraw. Brown's honest and provocative views reflect those of the era in which she thrived as a pioneer of the sexual revolution. Although her death in 2013 may have marked the end of that era, she has left us this personal opus to memorialize a pop-culture lifestyle that may soon be no more than extinct.
