DeepGlamour.net is a spinoff of my research for a book on glamour that I'm writing for The Free Press. It's a way to try out ideas, interview interesting people, and get feedback from readers. It also gives me a chance to apply my ideas about glamour to time-sensitive subjects.
This isn't a one-woman site, however. One of the biggest reasons for starting it was a chance to work with Kate Coe, a woman with impeccable taste and a vast historical knowledge of Hollywood, fashion, and design. We're partners in this enterprise, and we'll be bringing in other writers, both one-time guests and regular contributors. We welcome your ideas and comments.
