Publisher's description: "Like Scheherazade I have woven many stories from my life and photography into something like a coherent narrative of the times I found myself in", says Austrian-born American photographer Lisl Steiner (b. 1927), one of the most unusual personalities in the history of photo journalism. She is a world traveler, she sketches, she is a poet, and a muse to some. At the age of 88 she became a YouTube success with more than 400,000 hits: Society is Kaput & Other Truths From an Ageless Spirit. In this book Lisl Steiner gathers her engaging photographs in a kind of retrospective, pictures of Armstrong, Bernstein, Borges, Carter, Castro, Casals, Davis, Gulda, Eisenhower, Ellington, JFK, Mailer, Neruda, Niemayer, Nixon, Pele, B.B. King and Martin Luther King, or Kissinger in conversation with Beckenbauer in the bathtub. Her drawings and her life story complement the photographs. Lisl Steiner's account of her life is colorful to the maximum.
