Overview

The Best of Vanity Fair ELIZABETH TAYLOR: Eight Remarkable Stories About Hollywood's Most Beautiful, Most Controversial Star by Graydon Carter, Dominick Dunne, George Hamilton, Sam Kashner

The Queen of Glam … Violet Eyes … Dame Elizabeth … Miz Liz. In a moving tribute to the big screen’s grande dame, the editors of Vanity Fair have published the magazine’s first e-book, a star-studded collection of classic stories from the likes of Dominick Dunne and George Hamilton—taken from the pages of Vanity Fair, Hollywood’s acknowledged arbiter of talent, glamour, and power. This e-book lifts the veil on the real Elizabeth Taylor—the child star and cinematic beauty, the seductress and consummate diva—through her more than 50 films and seven husbands, through her torrid affairs and countless illnesses, meltdowns, and triumphs. Here is a behind-the-scenes portrait of La Liz—in all her dazzling, madcap glory.

This book was enjoyable at times, but at other times it was hard to follow some of the many contributors thoughts. It was not what I expectes, but I did enjoy learning more about her life.
