Acclaimed biographer David Bret has written the most revealing, incisive and definitive life story of Elizabeth Taylor in this sensational new biography. The book is set to strip away the glossy veneer to portray the star as she really was: sometimes arrogant, attention-seeking, avaricious, reckless, monstrous towards her peers, generous, even foolish at times but, above all, through the tumultuous relationships and the personal mayhem, a survivor.
