D’Orsay Potter Palmer was a deeply flawed man, colorful, but a huge dreamer and drinker. He was a man of his time, when the trappings of excessive wealth were flaunted in stark contrast to the poverty leading up to the Great Depression. The lives and antics of Hollywood’s royalty regularly were featured on the second page of most newspapers. D’Orsay thought he also belonged there and often fanaticized situations where he was sure he would get a call from Hollywood. His grandfather helped build the city of Chicago and his grandmother championed the Impressionism art movement, while charming the royals of England and Europe before she moved to Florida. She pioneered a cattle business in Sarasota, convincing some of her high society friends to leave their established winter base in Palm Beach for the emerging West Coast of Florida. Primarily using newspaper accounts, the book is based on a fictitious scenario of the events that led to and possibly caused D’Orsay’s death. The names of the real players in the drama of D’Orsay’s life are used in the book . Most died years ago. While conflicting accounts were printed at the time, this book is just one possibility of what may have transpired.
