With the world at her feet and Californian railroad fortunes in her purse, Aimée had a tale or two to tell. Here, she boldly delivers her hilarious memoirs of escaping head-hunters in Borneo, avoiding poisoning in Hong Kong and outwitting murder in Shanghai. Not remotely cowed by her skirmishes with sin, shame or vice, Aimée celebrates her quintet of unfortunate husbands, including a Russian prince almost forty years her junior and King Kalakaua of Hawaii, emboldened by her forcefulness to hold sway over the faint of heart. Aimée was a woman of means, not always a lady and never what you might call ‘proper’. In this laugh-out-loud story of her life, she recounts her adventures with flair, invincibility and unapologetic gusto.
Aimée Crocker was an American heiress, Bohemian, world traveller and author best known for her adventures in the Far East, her extravagant parties and her collections of husbands and lovers, adopted children, Buddhas, tattoos and snakes.
