Ludwig Bemelmans came to the California home of famed interior decorator Elsie de Wolfe, Lady Mendl, for cocktails. By the end of the night, he was firmly established as a member of the family: given a bedroom in their sumptuous house, invitations to the most outrageous parties in Hollywood, and the friendship of the larger-than-life woman known to her closest friends simply as 'Mother'. With hilarity and mischief, Bemelmans lifts the curtain on a bygone world of extravagance and eccentricity, where the parties are held in circus tents and populated by ravishing movie stars. To the One I Love the Best is a luminous painting of life's oddities and a touching tribute to a fabulously funny woman.

"This book is a must." -- The New York Times "An extravaganza in Bemelmans' inimitable vein." --Kirkus Reviews "Delightful... It was Bemelmans' privilege to have known [Lady Mendl] and it's ours to have his gorgeous recollections." --Sunday Times "A beautiful, fun and emotion-filled piece of social history." --Irish Independent "The charm of To the One I Love the Best lies in the peerless combination of author and subject." --Paris Review "About a third of the way through the book I decided that Lady Mendl, was one of the great comic creations in the history of literature . . . as airy as a souffle, full of the sun and smells of California . . . Madeline for grown ups." --The Spectator "Reissued treasure." --The Gloss
