" Vivien Leigh A Biography"--by Anne Edwards--The actress's complex personality, love affair with Olivier, rise to stardom, glamorous social life, and tragic death are brought into clear focus in this detailed portrait
Here is an extraordinary complex woman brought vividly to life in this first complete biography. Given total access to Miss Leigh’s personal letters, and working with the cooperation of those who had been closest to her, Anne Edwards has produced a frank, open book that does not spare the truth, yet is as romantic a canvas, as turbulent and moving a story as any of the great films in which Vivien ever starred.
Anne Edwards (born August 20, 1927, Port Chester, New York, USA) is an American author best known for her biographies of celebrities that include Princess Diana, Maria Callas, Judy Garland, Katharine Hepburn, Vivien Leigh, Margaret Mitchell, Ronald Reagan, Barbra Streisand, Shirley Temple and Countess Sonya Tolstoy
