Audrey Hepburn: A Biography by Barry Paris

The most beautiful film and fashion statement of her era, and the highest-paid film actress of the time, despite never having taken an acting lesson, Audrey Hepburn was for decades a source of delight and genuine admiration. Beginning with her traumatic childhood in Nazi-occupied Holland, biographer Barry Paris tells the story of Audrey's life - her dreams of being a ballerina; her mother's ambition, which led Audrey to London, where she was discovered in the chorus lines of the West End and catapulted to stardom in Hollywood; her title role on Broadway in "Gigi"; and her Oscar- and Tony-winning performances within a year of her arrival in America. Yet, over the years, Audrey shied away from the glamour of Hollywood and yearned for the happiness of family life. After two unsuccessful marriages that produced two longed-for sons, Audrey finally found fulfilment in the last five years of her life in her relationship with Rob Wolders and in her humanitarian work as a special ambassador for UNICEF, campaigning for the starving children of Africa.
