Benedicte Valentiner's award-winning book on her years as General Manager of the Blair House in Washington DC dazzles us with her wit, her style and her remarkable attention to detail. She was revered by her dedicated staff and gave tirelessly to her bosses - four American presidents.  You will laugh until you cry with her descriptive tales of the hundreds of guests, mostly presidents and potentates of foreign countries, who she entertained. First Lady, Barbara Bush, said, "She ran the Blair House" like a five-star hotel".
