Shelly Kupferberg, author, presenter and journalist, uses family letters and photos, old documents and archive material to trace the outlines of an astonishing career, a rapid social rise. Her great-granduncle Isidor was a dazzling figure, a doer and a bon vivant who loved luxury, art and especially opera.
