Description

Sven Broman, a Swedish journalist, gained Greta Garbo's confidence and penetrated her legendary silence like no one else. He first met her in 1985 in the Swiss resort Klosters, and gradually they became friends, walking and talking in the mountains and chatting in the bar of the hotel. Broman and his wife subsequently visited Garbo in her apartment in New York and in between these meetings they spoke regularly on the telephone. Garbo was aware that Broman made extensive notes after every conversation, and she told him that after her death he could publish as much as she liked. In this book she reveals intimate details about her childhood in Sweden, her first modelling jobs and early movies, her rise to stardom and her loathing of Hollywood, her shock decision to quit the film industry and the long years of silence that followed.
