Imelda and Her Shoes

Imelda
Steel Butterfly of the Philippines
Ellison
1988

Those of us paying attention in the 80s remember when Imelda Marcos ruled the news with her Hollywood ties, wealth and power. She probably defined the word excess in a way that no reality star could touch today. The politics, murder and excess of this time was like a live version of the television show Scandal.

Does she deserve a biography? Absolutely! I would love to see a newer one. When this was published she and Ferdinand were in exile in Hawaii. In only a few years after this was published, Ferdinand died and the trial and money still was in play.
