A dual-autobiography by identical twin sisters Gloria Vanderbilt (Snr) and Thelma Furness. Gloria and Thelma were great beauties and epitomised the International Set of 1920s America. Their lives and loves were followed eagerly in the press. Double Exposure was intended to put the record straight on topics such as the custody battle for Gloria's daughter, the greater known Gloria, and Thelma's relationships with the Prince of Wales and Aly Khan.
