Best is Yet to Come: Coping with Divorce and Enjoying Life Again

Ivana Trump, Author Pocket Books $23 (269p) ISBN 978-0-671-86569-6
It's hard to know whether to laugh or cry at this forthright, kindly and odd saga of advice from one of the most public divorcees in recent memory. Ivana obviously wants to help women struggling with some semblance of her own troubles. Get tough, get on with your life, keep busy, look good, find a new man: not much to argue with there. But however hard she tries to identify with ordinary folk, she can't resist telling how Prince Charles dropped by for tea at Mar-a-Lago. Seemingly nothing escapes Ivana's sharp eye. Her readers are bombarded with rhetorical questions: ``You're not surprised are you?'' (that Diana couldn't change Charles); ``That's quite a blessing, don't you think?'' (the two young princes). Cinderella wins no points from Ivana: ``Cinderella should have said good-bye to those nasty relatives, cleaned herself up, gotten a nice job and a cute apartment somewhere.'' It is easy to mock, but the heart of the champion skier from the former Czechoslovakia is in the right place. She adores her three children and manages to keep all animosity toward The Donald out of these pages, saying, ``I wish Donald nothing but the best, and I know he feels the same way toward me.'' This curiosity rather than self-help volume will be read more for the interesting detail of daily life as Ivana Trump than for hints on how to survive divorce and single parenthood. (May)
