An exceptional introduction to Audrey
on 22 January 2005
I ordered this book from Amazon as way of introduction to Audrey, not knowing much about the woman whose style is continually referenced to in magazines and whose films are frequently shown on television. With a growing interest in Audrey, both in her acting career and her personal life, I found this book an engrossing way to discover more about this fascinating woman's life. Paris covers all aspects of Audrey's childhood, film career and relationshps, from her life-shaping experience of the Second World War, to her two divorces, children and admirable work for UNICEF. While doing so with great respect for a woman who was the epitome of grace and elegance, he doesn't fail to provide the true stories from behind the scenes of the movies and her own personal difficulties. This book is not just an overview of her career, but also an exploration into what made her character. If you want a comprehensive and honest account of Audrey's life, that will equip you with all the knowledge necesssary to become another Audrey buff, then buy this book!
