For more than six decades Elizabeth Taylor has been a part of our lives. Now acclaimed biographer J. Randy Taraborrelli looks past the tabloid version of Elizabeth's life and offers the first-ever fully realized portrait of this American icon. You'll meet her controlling mother who plotted her daughter's success from birth...see the qualities that catapulted Elizabeth to stardom in 1940s Hollywood...understand the psychological and emotional underpinnings behind the eight marriages...and, finally, rejoice in Elizabeth's most bravura performance of all: the new success in family, friendships, and philanthropy she achieved despite substance abuse and chronic illness. It's the story of the woman you thought you knew--and now can finally understand.

About the Author:

AUTHORBIO: J. RANDY TARABORRELLI lives in Los Angeles, California.

From AudioFile:

This tawdry Hollywood pot-boiler chronicles the life and times of superstar Elizabeth Taylor. Taraborrelli, best known for "revealing" facts and fiction about the Kennedy women, Princess Grace, Cher, and Madonna, slices up Liz's films, escapades, home wrecking, eight marriages (including her twenty-year relationship with Richard Burton), alcohol and drug addictions, and AIDS work into bite-size pieces that are easily digested. Reader Lynne Maclean delivers the story in a charming, slightly star-struck voice, wisely dropping to a lower tone when quoting Taylor or Burton. The comments of the author add little. But no matter the flaws, the gossip about a larger-than-life woman makes for a wickedly compelling listen. M.T.B. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
