Wrote a book, Apres Claude, to a measure of acclaim in the early ’70s. She was better known as Harriet Daimler, one of the original Olympia authors, and the only Merlinois Girodias ever asked to “tone it down.” (The lady had a delightfully brutal, caustic wit, in one book referring to the drab bourgeoisie of France as “low birth rates.”)
One of the most beautiful women in Paris in the ’50s, she was a gal that every guy, 30 years later, claims to have been with. (She admitted a liaison with Alex Trocchi.) Later said to have worked as a professional poker player (this from an another Olympian.)
the journal, in Brooklyn, will be doing a retrospective on her. Just sent ‘em some covers.
There was a legacy page set up as well.
