Julia Roberts

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This biography is part of the series "People in the News." Although its copyright date is 2003, it is already out of date. No mention is made of Roberts' second marriage. The source notes for this biography are excellent, and the source of each quote is identified in the endnotes. Photo credits are listed, as are works consulted. The end-matter also includes a list for further reading, important dates in Julia Roberts' life, and an index. Numerous black-and-white photos are included. Sidebars expand upon some of Roberts' films and famous friends. The intent of this series is to portray subjects in a "realistic, unsentimental light." After reading the biography, however, one is no closer to knowing Julia Roberts as a person. The biography merely repeats what has been written Roberts in various entertainment magazines. The biographer is unable to clarify any rumors, therefore, speculation is simply repeated. 2003, Lucent Books/Gale,
