American Eve

In 1900, actress and model Evelyn Nesbit set the standard for female beauty, her image used to sell products of all kinds.  Evelyn's life took a scandalous turn when her jealous millionaire husband Harry K. Thaw murdered her lover, famed architect Stanford White, in New York City.  Author Paula Aruburu mined Nesbit's letters, memoirs, and photos to tell the story of an innocent caught in the web of two sexual predators, and a scandal that signaled the beginning of a national obsession with youth, beauty, celebrity, and sex.
