In her newest book, acclaimed biographer and novelist Gioia Diliberto (I Am Madame X) elves into an underexamined and politically charged moment in the life of the eternally enigmatic godmother of modern fashion, Coco Chanel, who was arrested on charges of treason to France in the wake of her wartime romance with a Nazi spy. Homing in on Chanel’s life at the Ritz Hotel in Paris in the aftermath of World War II, and the unknown details of her interrogation at the hands of the French authorities, Coco at the Ritz tells the story of one woman’s choices amidst the highest of stakes. Joined in conversation by Dawn Tripp (Georgia; Game of Secrets), Diliberto brings to the (virtual) Greenlight stage a riveting, prismatic exploration of a complex and controversial woman.
