The story, recaptured in 272
pages and 52 photos, weaves
together oral histories,
research and commentary
dealing with the excitement
and the pains of being Miss
America in a period seething
with anti-Semitism and sex-
ism. The book made its of-
ficial debut at the Book Fair,
selling out the 400 copies
available in less than 15
minutes.
Obviously, the audience
couldn't get enough.
"The good things override
the bad," said Ruth Binder,
who sat teary-eyed in the au-
dience as Myerson spoke. "It
all came from the
heart?' "She was so good, I
cried," said Bebe Mandell,
who's husband added, "(The
scandal) wasn't our
business." Myerson and
Dworkin were overwhelmed.
"We didn't expect this," they
said, after signing nearly
every single book they sold.
Publisher Margolis, who
raised several eyebrows after
her decision to go ahead with
the printing of 35,000 copies
of the book even after Myer-
son's crown was tarnished, is
overjoyed by the book's
success.
In terms of sales, the recent
scandals don't seem to be hur-
ting anything. But Myerson,
Dworkin and Margolis all in-
sist the book would have done
just as well without all the
bad wrap, thank you.
"We have a hit," rejoiced
Myerson, reflecting on the
standing ovation the Book
Fair crowd gave her and
Dworkin. "We have a long-
standing hit."
Margolis admits the "Bess
Mess" highlights the book
but also "disrupts the flow?'
Several communities where
Myerson was scheduled to
speak are now cautious to the
point of cancellation."If it had
not happened," said Margolis,
"it would have been harder
for me as the publisher and it
would have been easier for me
