In the hierarchy of sports events, the Grand Prix Automobile de Monaco is king, being as well as an anachronism of absurd proportions. There is always a palpable feeling of danger, and it is a true miracle that so few have been injured in its long history. This is where the symbiosis of truly irreconcilable elements tasks place. Order is paired with chaos, tranquil idyll with frenetic activity, constancy with change. The very poorest on the Rocher below the old town the very riches on their yachts at the Quai Antoine I are equal before the majesty of this event. Monaco is marked as a must in the diaries of the famous, the beautiful, and the powerful--just as it is in the television programs of millions of viewers around the world. This book bends its knee to a pageant.
