It takes a certain kind of woman to have the courage to defy societal conventions. In an era when her female counterparts were still expected to marry early and have children, Tania Grossinger set out on her own. This is her story. After spending her childhood at the famous Grossinger’s resort in the Catskills, Tania Grossinger was the publicist for the groundbreaking The Feminine Mystique (over four million copies sold), spent seven years as the Director of Broadcast Promotion for Playboy Magazine and the Playboy Club, did PR for The $64,000 Question, escaped her first marriage, and went to live in Mexico — and that’s only the beginning. Rubbing shoulders with some of America’s most famous figures, what Tania has to reveal about Ayn Rand (she has a sense of humor after all), Timothy Leary, Jackie Robinson, Hugh Hefner, and the unsolved disappearance of a fellow travel writer in Jamaica, will keep you up at night turning the pages of one of the most interesting women to put pen to paper in recent memory.
