Gavin Lambert's life-long friendship with Wood began when she wanted to star in the movie adaptation of his novel Inside Daisy Clover. Now he tells her story, from her Russian parentage and the urgings of her driven 'stage mother', through her awkward adolescence, to her flowering as a glamorous movie star. He documents her marriages, divorces and love affairs; her suicide attempt at 26; the birth of her children, her friendships, her struggles as an actress and her tragic death by drowning.

Review:

"'The astonishing life of the screen legend from a man who knew her for twenty years.' Tatler; 'Lambert is the ultimate Hollywood insider/outsider... the biography, although obviously affectionate, does not flinch from the emotional and romantic debris of her life... a very readable and well-crafted biography.' Independent; 'An irresistible portrait of Natalie's genorosity, spirit and fun... I fell in love with Natalie Wood all over again.' Mail on Sunday; 'This biography is stunning... sceptical, elegant, generous, exact' Observer"
