Summary
Ava Gardner was one of Hollywood's great stars during the 1940s and '50s, an Oscar-nominated leading lady who costarred with Clark Gable, Burt Lancaster, and Humphrey Bogart, among others. But this riveting account of her storied life and career had to wait for publication until after her death, so concerned was Gardner with its frankness. The legendary actress serves up plenty of gems in these pages, reflecting with delicious humor and cutting wit on a life that took her from an impoverished childhood in North Carolina to the heights of stardom. Tell-all stories abound, especially when Gardner holds forth on her three husbands: Mickey Rooney, bandleader Artie Shaw, and Frank Sinatra. She has just as much to say about lovers, such as Howard Hughes and George C. Scott and would-be lover John Huston--all of whom get Gardner's unflinchingly honest treatment

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
