Books for Jennifer





I recently came across an old Domino photo of Nick Olsen's home that showed his cocktail table vignette. Displayed on the table was a book titled "Beauty and Nick". I remember thinking that was rather clever the first time I saw that photo. It also reminded me of a lecture that Bunny Williams once gave in which she showed a photo of an old book titled "Naughty Miss Bunny".

On a whim, I did some eBay, Abebooks, and Amazon searches to see what kind of books had the name "Jennifer" in the title. Well, the books that I found don't look like much. It seems that the name Jennifer was popular for both childrens' books and pulp fiction. Talk about running the gamut! I also noticed that many of the titles referred to various items "for Jennifer", titles like "High Heels for Jennifer", "Passport for Jennifer", and my favorite, "Stardust for Jennifer". Now that I write this, I am starting to realize that maybe these book titles aren't so bad after all!













Finally, though, I believe I have found the perfect book for me:
