About The Author

Bérénice de la Salle grew up in the Pacific Palisades California during the decades of the Fifties and Sixties.  She graduated from Westlake School for Girls in 1969, and then  studied art at Briarcliff College for Women in New York. In 1971, she moved to Paris where she became a  stock broker for Merrill Lynch, Pierce, Fenner & Smith.  She met Pierre within weeks of her arrival, fell in love, and remained by his side until the end of his life in November of 2011.  At the time they met, she was nineteen and he, forty-six.  They married in 1976 and had one child together, a daughter, Devon, who resides in Malibu. 
Beautiful Riddle was written as,
slowly, Pierre  recounted to Bérénice the events of the decade he had spent with Suzy.
"It was like pulling teeth," she says. "Getting Pitou to open his heart was a painful, if cathartic, experience. Having watched him as he spoke, I feel certain that this is the true story of what happened to them.... at least, to the extent of Robert Evan's definition of 'the truth.'  Bob once said: 'There are three sides to every story: my side, your side and the truth. And no one is lying.  Memories shared serve each one differently.'  I thought of that as I wrote."
