Product Description

Review

"As Ian Woodward demonstrates in this well-researched biography, she was every bit as charming and delightful off screen as on" (Mail on Sunday)

From the Back Cover

In this first major study of the captivating life of Audrey Hepburn. Ian Woodward uncovers the truly sensational story of one of Hollywood's most enduring legends.

Born into the Dutch aristocracy, Audrey Hepburn lived a fairy-tale existence until the outbreak of World War ll when her father, a Nazi sympathiser, abondoned his wife and children. Having risked her life for the Dutch resistance movement, she fled to England to train as a dancer.

But success came later when she was discovered in France by the novelist Colette, who realised she would be perfect for the character Gigi, and indeed, Audrey stunned both the ruthless New York critics and the public in Gigi on Broadway. Then came Roman Holiday, the film which brought her an Oscar and launched her international career in a string of movie successes like Funny Face, Breakfast at Tiffany's and My Fair Lady.

But even her illustrious film career paled against the outstanding work she did for UNICEF. Despite her personal fight against cancer, she dedicated the last years of her life to bringing help to the starving children of the world.

Audrey Hepburn became more than a movie star. She became a legend, first on screen - and then on the arid plains of Africa.

This book goes into great depth of the icon we know and love. Everything from the great movies role, loves in her life and the pain of losing a child makes you love this idol even more.
This book can be a little too descriptive at some points but stick with it - it's worth it!

What a wonderful book on a wonderful screen actress and person, the author has done such great work to bring out Audrey's personality through the pages and should be commended for it.
I thoroughly enjoyed reading about her life on an off the camera especially her work with UNICEF in the final chapters, the book is carefully choreographed into 5 parts and researched with such great thought and integrity.
It is the only book I have ever read about Audrey, but I feel if I read another then this will always be judged against it, a fascinating read which I would recommend to everyone.
