You may have heard that Greenhalgh's screen adaptation of the novel was given the honor of closing this year's Cannes Film Festival, and hits U.S. theaters in January 2010. But I have to tell you that COCO CHANEL & IGOR STRAVINSKY is a novel that also stands alone-one that fashionistas and lovers of historical fiction alike will want to get their hands on. COCO CHANEL & IGOR STRAVINSKY sumptuously portrays the brief, fiery and little-known affair between Chanel and legendary composer Igor Stravinsky. As Stravinsky enjoyed a burst of creativity, leading his music in a new direction, Chanel brought forth her most lasting creation: the legendary perfume Chanel No. 5. Available for pre-order here.
