The intimate, funny, and true story of a Hollywood legend coming face-to-face with her most ardent fan. On May 28, 1985, star-struck Elizabeth Fuller's dream came true when the legendary Bette Davis came to dinner at her Connecticut home. Four weeks later, as the hotel strike in New York dragged on, she was still there. Here is Elizabeth Fuller's warm, candidly funny day-to-day account of trying to please the irascible queen of Hollywood in so adverse a condition as ordinary life--it's a Bette Davis no fan would expect: attending a neighborhood seance, river rafting, signing autographs at McDonald's, and remaining every inch the superstar while riding shotgun in a rusty Toyota. She was explosive, intimidating, demanding...and always entertaining. She conquered suburbia, took over the Fuller's home and changed their life forever. For Bette Davis, playing herself was a breeze. For Elizabeth Fuller, it was the performance of a lifetime.
