Publisher's Summary

Beginning with her harsh childhood in Nazi-occupied Holland, Warren Harris chronicles Audrey Hepburn's meteoric rise to Hollywood stardom: her chance encounter with Colette that led to the lead role in the Broadway version of Gigi, and her first starring role in Roman Holiday, for which she won the Academy Award for Best Actress. Hepburn played opposite the top leading men, worked for the best directors, and picked from a wide range of roles.

She memorably embodied Truman Capote's Holly Golightly in Breakfast at Tiffany's and went from rags to Technicolor Victorian beauty in My Fair Lady. Warren Harris also traces Hepburn's affairs and unhappy marriages, as well as her later work as goodwill ambassador for UNICEF. Throughout the book he illuminates her special ability to exude grace and style, both on screen and off.

Disappointing

Would have liked to hear more about her as a person, and less about her career.

One of the Best

Kudos to Wanda McCaddon for an amazing narration. She mimics Audrey’s voice to perfection & makes the book so real.

The story frank and engaging. The performance pitch perfect. each accent/character incredibly well done. Loved what I learned about the years of Ms. Hepburn's upbringing, personal life, and career, her contemporaries and friendships.

Fantastic biography

Audrey Hepburn truly was a great influence on the movie industry and the world. I enjoyed learning more about her journey and how WW2 deeply impacted her story.

The biography was well researched, presented, and respectful of what Audrey intentionally kept private. Loved this book!

A nice biography

I enjoyed this book very much. It seem to be factual and authentic. However, the reader’s affectation of Audrey Hepburn’s voice was a dreadful distraction.

Too many details?

This must be the definitive biography of Audrey Hepburn! No detail is left uncovered. But little about her feelings. Very laudatory.
