American multi-millionairess and expatriate Alice de Janzé turned Paris’s elite on its head when she left her aristocratic French husband for her English lover, Raymund de Trafford. Paul Spicer, whose mother was a dear friend of Alice’s, used personal letters and his own research to piece together Alice’s life from her beginnings in Chicago to New York to Paris to Kenya’s Happy Valley for his forthcoming book, The Temptress, excerpted here.
