At fifty-six, Nan Kempner is not so much youthful and pretty as she is striking and sinuously handsome. She is known - and occasionally resented - in her circle for her astounding thinness, and when she hasn't 'gone to bone,' which does happen every now and then, her birch-tree-straight frame carries expensive clothes especially well. When she was a little girl, her father, 'Speed' Schlesinger, said, 'You're no beauty, Nan. With a face like yours, you're going to have to learn to keep your back straight and make a good presentation of yourself.' It was something she never forgot.

When the Party's Over takes us behind the scenes with socialite Nan Kempner.

When the Party's Over is one of the fascinating profiles featured in The King of the Ferret Leggers and Other True Stories by award-winning journalist Donald Katz, available in audio exclusively at audible.com. It was originally published in New York Woman, October 1987.
