Bits of bliss:
1. Olympe: "I knew I was too happy!"
2. "Marguerite" (Garbo) is born into a lower class family, but over time becomes the well-known Dame Camille living in high society in Paris
3. This tear-jerker follows two painfully tragic, star-crossed lovers
Carey Wallace was raised in small towns in Michigan. Constantly drawn the theme of love and death, she is the author of a “charming and refreshingly modest debut” novella The Blind Contessa’s New Machine and the forthcoming The Ghost In The Glass House. She is the founder of the Working Artists Initiative for the International Arts Movement, which helps emerging artists establish strong creative habits, and The Hillbilly Underground, an annual arts retreat which draws nationally-recognized filmmakers, writers, fine artists, and musicians to rural Michigan each summer. She lives and works in Brooklyn.
