“Shimmering in blue sequins and periwinkle eye shadow, Elizabeth Taylor strode onto the stage of the Mark Hellinger Theater to present the 1981 Antoinette Perry Award for Broadway’s best musical…As she started to speak, the entire audience suddenly rose to give her a standing ovation. Wildly cheering, the crowd paid homage to the woman whose beauty had for so long enchanted the America. Now ripe and opulent at forty-nine, she no longer looked like the little girl who had ridden to glory in National Velvet; but the audience did not care, She could still bestow a touch of magic.”—from the preface

About the author (2011)

Kitty Kelley attended the University of Arizona and the University of Washington. Kelley was a VIP hostess at the 1965 World's Fair, worked in Senator Eugene McCarthy's office in Washington, D.C. and was an editorial researcher at the Washington Post. Her claim to fame was Jackie Oh!, the tell-all biography of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. Many other smut-filled scandalous biographies followed, including those of Frank Sinatra, Elizabeth Taylor, and Nancy Reagan. She also authored The Royals, which was published during the same time as the Princess Diana tragedy.
