Becoming Duchess Goldblatt: A Memoir

Part memoir and part joyful romp through the fields of imagination, the story behind a beloved pseudonymous Twitter account reveals how a writer deep in grief rebuilt a life worth living.

BECOMING DUCHESS GOLDBLATT is two stories: that of the reclusive real-life writer who created a fictional character out of loneliness and thin air, and that of the magical Duchess Goldblatt herself, a bright light in the darkness of social media. Fans around the world are drawn to Her Grace’s voice, her wit, her life-affirming love for all humanity, and the fun and friendship of the community that’s sprung up around her.

@DuchessGoldblat (81-year-old literary icon, author of AN AXE TO GRIND) brought people together in her name: in bookstores, museums, concerts and coffee shops, and, along the way, brought real friends home --- foremost among them, Lyle Lovett.

Audiobook available; read by Gabra Zackman, Lyle Lovett and J. Smith-Cameron
