"By turns moving and chillling, Leaming's fascinating life story of Davis consistently transcends the 'star' genre to establish itself as serious biography."
SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE
From Barbara Leaming, the critically acclaimed biographer of Orson Welles and Rita Hayworth.
In this extraordinary biography, fans and film historians will discover a different, darker side of Bette Davis: a woman beset with scarring personal and professional doubts, a daughter whose mother was devoted to her success, and a mother who loved her own daughter to distraction. Obsessive and compulsive Davis was happy only she was working, but did not always choose her projects wisely. She fought a lifelong battle with alcohol, and she had an insatiable need to be loved, often at great emotional cost. A legend, a star, a remarkable woman, Bette Davis lived her life as if it were a coveted role she was desperately afraid she might not win....
Known for her highly regarded biographies Mrs. Kennedy, Marilyn Monroe, and Orson Welles, Barbara Leaming lives in Great River, New York.
