I read Sleeping With the Enemy a few weeks ago but I didn’t have a chance to write my review before I left for New York for Fashion Week. I’ve waited on writing the review because my notes are in the book (which I left at home) but I will say that Hal Vaughan did not convince me that Coco Chanel was a Nazi spy. While I will wait on going into details on why I’m not convinced until I have my notes with me, I found a really interesting interview on BBC radio where Hal Vaughn and another Chanel biographer, Justine Picardie, debate Chanel’s involvement with the Nazi’s. Having read both books, I agree with Justine Picardie’s point of view. Have you read the books? What do you think?
You can hear the interview with Hal Vaughn and Justine Picardie on the BBC website.
