the last book I ever read (Gluck: Her Biography by Diana Souhami, excerpt thirteen)

from Gluck: Her Biography by Diana Souhami:

In November 1972, preparations began in earnest for the show the following Spring. Nesta called at The Fine Art Society, impressed them with her charm, told them she was ‘whirling wih contacts’ and began putting the word about to her numerous influential friends. Gluck signed all pictures in her possession, advertised The Times and The Telegraph to trace the whereabouts of those sold long ago, negotiated with a framemaker, worried about the lettering of the flag to be hung outside the gallery, the quality of photography in the catalogue, the design of the room, the publicity, and whether champagne or sparkling wine would be drunk at the party. She allowed no one to get on with their job without intervention from her.
