Summary
A couple of years before her death in 1990, Hollywood star Ava Gardner asked British journalist Peter Evans to help her write her autobiography. When she realized how vulgar she appeared in his transcriptions of their conversations, she canceled the project. Years later, Evans pulled his materials out of a drawer, and (with permission from Gardner's estate) reviewed them and assembled Gardner's narration with contextual information. The result is a fascinating, earthy and complete portrait of the star, from her financially meager childhood through her rise to fame and her tempestuous romantic involvements. - Description by Katherine Bradley Johnson
