Musings on work, life and love by a remarkable octogenarian. Born as a child of The Great Depression, she left the farm in Nebraska to dance with the stars on the hills of Hollywood then moved on up to The Big Apple to become a vital part of advertising’s Golden Age. There, she worked for some of the world’s greatest marketing agencies in the Swinging 60’s era of three martini lunches as a brilliant copywriter creating memorable ads and iconic taglines for perfumes that still run today. She ascended the ranks to become an executive, ultimately retiring as Revlon’s first female vice-president. Rita was a trailblazer. Here, she tells her story from The Tractor Years to The Cocktail Years and how she enjoyed her life just as she enjoyed her martinis – one sip at a time.
Memoirs are my favorite type of books to read. I adore memoirs because they give the reader insight into a person’s fascinating life. In particular, I love memoirs which are written by somebody who has lived through pivotal moments in history because the reader is whisked away on a journey and if the author of such a biography is brilliantly descriptive about the places he and or she visits, the reader will feel as if they are right there experiencing every moment the person is. One Sip at a Time written by the extraordinary Rita Grisman and Loralyn Mears is just this type of read; it is an incredibly powerful memoir that whisks the reader away on a journey through key moments in America’s history.
