The most ambitious and personal account ever written about Hollywood's most gracious star-Audrey Hepburn by Barry Paris is a "moving portrayal" (The New York Times Book Review) that truly captures the woman who captured our hearts...

Review quote

"Rich and definitive...fascinating." *Seattle Post-Intelligencer "Illuminates the complex inner life of the highest-paid actress of her time." San Francisco Chronicle "Certainly [Paris's] account seems more personal than other recent biographies of Hepburn have been. In part, this may be because Paris had better access to family and friends, but he is also a very good writer, and his mix of anecdote and observation is just right." Booklist"show more
