BiCE, New York

Books were flying off the table at rising new author Rimma Rose’s cocktail reception at popular trattoria BiCE last night. Her book, Cursed to Survive, is a well-received historical World War II novel about a romance between a Nazi officer and a Jewish woman. The powerhouse PR guru Anna Rothschild and celebrity photographer Patrick McMullan fete attracted an enviable mix of A-listers, including: Prince Lorenzo Borgese, socialite Patty Raynes, Roger Waters wife Laurie Waters, Lady Liliana Cavendish, interior designer Albert Haje, and real estate magnate Eli Braha. When patty Raynes arrived, she declared with a gleam in her eye, “I’m ravenous.” BiCE’s General Manager Peter Guimares, who had just finished overseeing a meal for Top Chef host Padma Lakshmi, rustled up some of the venue’s notable dishes for Raynes and her friends.

Guest-of-honor Rose spoke to us about her novel: “It’s a ‘beauty and the beast’ story of the Holocaust filled with tragedy, real history and a sobering analysis of love, family, friendship and patriotism.”

The 31-year-old author, who has traveled all over the world, spent countless hours on historical and social research about European aristocracy, politics and international affairs of Europe in the 19th and 20th centuries. Her book takes a unique look inside the mind of a patriotic German nobleman with unusual gifts and immense opportunities for glory and domination. One witnesses the often horrific events of the Holocaust through his eyes, as he falls madly in love with a daughter of a Jewish doctor in the midst of the Nazi reign.
