Oct. 4 -The mysterious life of Huguette Clark, dog park subculture, college town retirement, women's sexual health, and house hunters!
When heiress Huguette Clark died in 2011 at the age of 104, she left behind a fortune estimated at $300 million. Huguette was a recluse, shunning the limelight for the last half-century of her life, and for the final twenty years she lived in modest rooms at Beth Israel Hospital in New York City. Strangely enough, she was perfectly healthy. Huguette's mysterious life and scandalous death is the subject of Meryl Gordon's new book, The Phantom of Fifth Avenue.
