Judith Thurman 

When: Mon., Nov. 26, 12 p.m. 2007
Price: free

She smoked and schmoozed with Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. She can muse at length, absorbingly, on Madame de Pompadour -- and Charlotte Brontë, Richard Avedon, Coco Chanel, and Japanese culture in general. Intrigued by vanity and so-called femininity and haute couture, Judith Thurman pursues these topics in The New Yorker. Twenty years' worth of her essays originally published in the magazine comprise a new book, Cleopatra's Nose: 39 Varieties of Desire, which examines controversial culture makers and edgy artists galore. At Mrs. Dalloway's (2904 College Ave., Berkeley) on Nov. 26, ask the National Book Award winner who told the best jokes. Noon.
