Na de Russische Revolutie belandde ze through nogal wat omzwervingen in Egypte. Vervolgens frequenteerde ze de duurste lodges aan de Côte d'Azur en in Parijs, een spoor van openstaande rekeningen en ongedekte cheques achter zich latend. Na Frankrijk te zijn uitgezet, zette ze haar leven op grootse voet voort in België en Zwitserland, gesteund door de uitstekende connecties die ze had in de hoogste kringen en vooral door haar onverwoestbare flair.

Sylvester Hoogmoed (1966) is politicoloog, schrijver en journalist. In 2011 verscheen zijn biografie We zien wel! Het wonderlijke leven van Ramses Shaffy. Verder publiceerde hij onder meer in De Groene Amsterdammer, de Volkskrant en Historisch Nieuwsblad. Ook presenteert hij een wekelijks chansonprogramma op de Concertzender.
