On Christmas Day, 1926, twelve-year-old Clotilde Coco Irvine received a blank diary as a present. Coco loved to write--and to get into scrapes--and her new diary gave her the opportunity to explain her side of the messes she created: I'm in deep trouble through no fault of my own, her entries frequently began. The daughter of a lumber baron, Coco grew up in a twenty-room mansion on fashionable Summit Avenue at the peak of the Jazz Age, a time when music, art, and women's social status were all in a state of flux and the economy was still flying high.
