My Improbable Journey from Cháteaux
in France to the Slums of Calcutta
How many people can count among their closest friends Ethel Merman (Broadway songstress extraordinaire), Mother Teresa (beatified by the Vatican in October, 2003), Lee Lehman, (wife of Robert Lehman, head of Lehman Brothers), Pierre Cardin (who was not only a legendary couturier but also a major show-business force in Europe) and many others?
Well, Tony Cointreau, a scion of the French liqueur family, can. His voice took him to the stage and his heart took him to Calcutta. He shares his life story in a new memoir, Ethel Merman, Mother Teresa …and Me: My Improbable Journey from Châteaux in France to the Slums of Calcutta.
