This is an amazing biography - the ultimate - that makes very extensive use of Swanson’s letters. Through these private documents the reader really gets to hear Swanson's voice and read what she was really thinking at the time. Welsh has done a tremendous job, and though she herself is an academic this book is very readable. Not only is the text great, but everything about this book is high quality from the paper to the photographs. It was a pleasure to hold and read. Anyone interested in Swanson or silent film should read this book – even experts will learn a lot. I only wish it was longer!
