by LaBelle Lance

Imagine a Scarlett O’Hara from Calhoun, Ga., her ambition covered over with religious clichés instead of polite, antebellum chatter. “Bert had started with little and had been given much. Of him much was expected.” In him a lot of us were disappointed. Bert Lance went to Washington because he is a close friend of Jimmy Carter. LaBelle Lance went because she is married to Bert. Her account of their rise and fall is a wandering, sincere autobiography filtered through traditional Southern beliefs. A soft-focus pink camellia decorates the jacket. Perfect.
