EW: The Best New Fall Books About Classic Hollywood

Thu Nov 3, 2022

Elizabeth Taylor: The Grit and Glamour of an Icon by Kate Andersen Brower

This fall is a windfall of riches for Old Hollywood lovers when it comes to access to the inner lives and archives of some of its most illustrious stars. But there is perhaps no bigger (or more misunderstood) star than Elizabeth Taylor, who at last gets an authorized biography courtesy of Kate Andersen Brower and the Taylor estate. With access to Taylor’s unpublished letters, diary entries, and off-the-record interview transcripts, as well as her own interviews with 250 of Taylor’s closest friends and family, readers will get the most personal look at Taylor ever put to paper. From her decades-long career as an actress, evolving from child star to Oscar-winning talent, to her notorious private life (including her eight marriages), Taylor’s life at last gets a biographical treatment that can tell her story in many of her own words.
