Part memoir, part biography, Shocked tells the story of two women: the author’s mother, Audrey Morgen Volk, a ”great beauty” of 1950s New York who lived by rigid sartorial standards, and Elsa Schiaparelli, the surrealist 1930s designer whose collaborations with the likes of Salvador Dalí revolutionized the fashion industry. Though Volk’s loose narrative thread is sometimes difficult to follow, she ultimately manages to stitch together a visually evocative coming-of-age story about fashion, femininity, and the often complicated mother-daughter dynamic.
