  • "Spoto tells her story movingly and well"

    Sunday Express
  • "Spoto was a close friend of Kelly's, so this is as definitive a biography as we will ever get"

    S, Sunday Express magazine
  • "Drawing on previously unpublished conversations, Spoto explores how Kelly changed Hollywood"

    Harpers Bazaar
  • "Kelly's life as told here reveals a gentler Donald Spoto than we're used to: his friendship with the star has ensured a generosity of judgement throughout...Some may yearn for a less sympathetic portrait, but it's hard to imagine that any subsequent biography could do such consummate justice to her life and career"
