If you have any interest in the Golden Age of Hollywood, you will love and reread this book endlessly.
Neither actress is shown favour, they were both very different and both a mix of glorious and dreadful but surviving in Hollywood without being sharp and deadly just wasn't an option, so you can't really blame them for the occasional splash of venom.
It's clever, brilliant, sad, cutting and extremely funny. Just like Joan and Bette.
I love this book! It is a fascinating insight into the lives of the two biggest stars the world has ever seen: the inimitable Bette Davis and the sublime Joan Crawford. If you are a fan of the Golden Era of Hollywood then it is simply a must-read. Delightfully camp and entertaining.
It is really well written and paced; full of juicy information about not only these magnetic, difficult, strong, fierce, wonderful ladies but also their relationships with other stars of the era such as Clark Gable, Rosalind Russell, Marilyn Monroe etc.
Rather than reading separate biographies of Joan and Bette I would recommend just buying this one as it covers each one's life in detail, from their births to their deaths - giving more than enough factual information on each and also busting well-known myths (e.g. Joan and her relationship with her children).
Full of inside stories I'd never heard before and told in an interesting way, it gives an insight into both star's lives and loves.
I thoroughly enjoyed it!
