Elizabeth Taylor: The Lady, The Lover, The Legend - 1932-2011 by David Bret

Acclaimed biographer David Bret has written the most revealing, incisive and definitive life story of Elizabeth Taylor in the sensational new biography Elizabeth Taylor: The Lady, The Lover, The Legend, 1932–2011.

Available mid-April, the book is set to strip away the glossy veneer to portray the star as she really was: sometimes arrogant, attention-seeking, avaricious, reckless, monstrous towards her peers, generous, even foolish at times but, above all, through the tumultuous relationships and the personal mayhem, a survivor.

Elizabeth Taylor was the very last of the Hollywood greats. As David Bret writes, ‘Most of her contemporaries . . . were compelled to walk in the shadow of her sun. Of today’s stars, not one may be deemed worthy of stepping even within a mile of that shadow.’

Condition: Good

A book that has been read but is in good condition. Some obvious damage to the cover including very minor scuff marks along the edges, and a fair amount of creasing on the front cover, which is not too noticeable as the creases blend in with the colours of the cover, but no holes or tears. The majority of pages are undamaged with very minimal creasing but no tearing. No pencil underlining of text, no highlighting of text, no writing in margins. No missing pages. Still a very clean, solid and readable copy.
