Overview

The most ambitious and personal account ever written about Hollywood’s most gracious star-Audrey Hepburn by Barry Paris is a “moving portrayal” (The New York Times Book Review) that truly captures the woman who captured our hearts…

With the insights of family and friends who never before spoke to a Hepburn biographer-and never-before-published photographs-Paris has created an in-depth portrait of the actress, from her childhood in Nazi-occupied Europe, through her legendary career, and into her UN ambassadorship.

Praise

“Rich and definitive…fascinating.” *Seattle Post-Intelligencer

“Illuminates the complex inner life of the highest-paid actress of her time.” San Francisco Chronicle

“Certainly [Paris’s] account seems more personal than other recent biographies of Hepburn have been. In part, this may be because Paris had better access to family and friends, but he is also a very good writer, and his mix of anecdote and observation is just right.” Booklist
