Overview

Elizabeth by J. Randy Taraborrelli, Lynne MacLean

For more than six decades she has been a part of our lives. Now acclaimed biographer J. Randy Taraborrelli looks past the tabloid version of Elizabeth's life and offers the first-ever fully realized portrait of this American icon. You'll meet her controlling mother who plotted her daughter's success from birth...see the qualities that catapulted Elizabeth to stardom in 1940s Hollywood...understand the psychological and emotional underpinnings behind the eight marriages...and, finally, rejoice in Elizabeth's most bravura performance of all: the new success in family, friendships, and philanthropy she achieved despite substance abuse and chronic illness. It's the story of the woman you thought you knew—and now can finally understand.

J. Randy Taraborrelli is a respected journalist, a recognizable entertainment personality, and in-demand guest on many television programs. He is the bestselling author of eight books. Taraborrelli is a reporter for the Times (London), Paris Match, and The Daily Mail (UK) and a contributor to Redbook, McCall's, and Good Housekeeping.

I just recently got interested in Miss Taylor and this book came out at just the right time. Let me tell you guys.. I flew through this like you would not believe! Even if you're not her biggest fan, which I certainly am not, you'll find this book just fascinating to read. What a great book. I simply could NOT PUT IT DOWN. I especially like that the author takes time to describe in great detail her relationships/marriages to all 7 of her husbands. After finishing it, I was these three things: 1.) In love with Richard Burton 2.) Devastated that the book ended! 3.) Even more fascinated by Miss Elizabeth Rosemond Taylor Hilton Wilding Fisher Todd Burton Burton (c'mon.. who WOULDN'T marry him twice?!) Warner, Plotensky. Trust me folks- this book is EXCELLENT. Spend the $25. It's totally worth it.

I grew up hearing about her all the time. I have to say I couldn't stand her when the Eddie Fisher thing went down, and I really didn't hear very good things about her all the time she was with Richard Burton. But later in her life I grew to love her. She did so mich for her friends--Rock Hudson and later Michael Jackson. I had friends who died of AIDS and she went straight to Heaven for her work there. I don't understand her friendship with the Reagans. I believe that Ronald's bigotry helped kill a lot of good people who did nothing wrong other than to love someone. I could go on, but okay Elizabeth out of respect for you. Again great booK? I laughed, I cried, I edperienced all emotions reading this...Namaste Elizabeth!
