The definitive biography, 25 April 2006
A lengthy but addictive read about the bitter sweet life of Ava Gardner. Thorougly well researched, particularly in respect of film production and anecdotes from co-stars and others who knew or met Ava. Written in a dispassionate yet understanding style by clearly an intelligent and insightful biographer.
Any fan of Ava Gardner or a curious on-looking should read this excellent and defining biography.
