Description

Elizabeth Taylor is known internationally as one of the most beautiful and talented women ever to grace the silver screen.

She has won two Academy Awards and starred in over sixty films.

She is just as well known for her tempestuous personal life, marrying eight times and suffering through innumerable health problems.

A cultural icon, she has been written about before . . . but never like this. This moving book traces for the first time Elizabeth's journey through the dark and often lonely world of a fame unparalleled in the 1960s and 1970s, a time during which alcohol and drugs played a major part in her life.

It would be with her fifth (and sixth) husband Richard Burton (with whom she made twelve movies, including Cleopatra) that she would learn life lessons about love and loyalty that would inform the rest of her life and, finally, be the catalyst for her recovery from alcoholism in the 1980s.

This book also details her philanthropic work as an AIDS activist in the 1990s as well as her stunning success as a business woman today (with a multi-million-dollar fragrance).

Based on years of research, this is not just a star's biography . . . it's an unforgettable woman's story.
