Many people know Playboy centerfold Bettie Page as America's greatest pin-up girl of the 1950s. At the height of her popularity, Bettie disappeared--some feared she had been killed by the mob, while others said she became a born-again Christian and was ashamed of her infamous bondage modeling. Here is the definitive, unauthorized biography of the Queen of Curves, revealing her struggles for fame and love and her descent into violent obsession and madness.

In this unauthorized biography of the 1950s pin-up phenomenon Bettie Page, Style Weekly's associate editor reveals new information about the pop icon's missing years. In 1957, at the height of her popularity, Page walked away from the glamour-girl lifestyle and disappeared until tracked down by reporters in 1992. Recent books and articles about the model, including her coauthored authorized biography, Bettie Page: The Life of a Pin-Up Legend (General Publishers Group, 1996), have left out seamier portions of her story, which Foster includes here. A chapter on Cyber Bettie gives web site addresses, including a hyperlink list to more than 400 images and text. An inventory lists selected book covers, comic books, and album and magazine covers. Although this work reads like a tabloid expose?Foster offers lots of speculation and not much insight?it will appeal to pin-up fans and, thanks to the reference material, collectors. Appropriate for larger public libraries.?Kelli N. Perkins, Herrick P.L., Holland, Mich.
