"Aging and reclusive Hollywood movie icon Evelyn Hugo is finally ready to tell the truth about her glamorous and scandalous life. But when she chooses unknown magazine reporter Monique Grant for the job, no one in the journalism community is more astounded than Monique herself... Regardless of why Evelyn has chosen her to write her biography, Monique is determined to use this opportunity to jumpstart her career. Summoned to Evelyn's Upper East Side apartment, Monique listens as Evelyn unfurls her story: from making her way to Los Angeles in the 1950s to her decision to leave show business in the late 80s, and, of course, the seven husbands along the way. As Evelyn's life unfolds, revealing a ruthless ambition, an unexpected friendship, and a great forbidden love, Monique begins to feel a very a real connection to the actress. But as Evelyn's story catches up with the present, it becomes clear that her life intersects with Monique's own in tragic and irreversible ways."--… (mere)

If this book proves anything, it's that genre biographies should be a thing. I really enjoyed this book, it just wasn't good enough to be one of my all-time favourites. I love reading biographies, I've read quite a few now and still have more on my TBR, but while they are compelling stories, they often times lack a plot. I love plot heavy books, and unfortunately this was not one of them. It's a very character driven book with very compelling characters and it really hooked me, but I did not find myself enjoying it in the way I have for other books. Evelyn is such an interesting character and there is no way this book could have worked outside of a biography/memoir formula.

I love that Evelyn owned up to everything she did. She knows where she went wrong and she knows she'd do it all over again for the fame because she knows herself. It's refreshing to see. I haven't read many characters who are honest in the way Evelyn is as she is telling her story. It makes it feel all the more real and remarkable. I think there should be more genre biographies because they allow us to explore interesting characters in a way a plot-heavy book cannot and I appreciate that.

I still highly recommend it to anyone looking for a character driven book about how far is too far to get what we want. I will certainly be checking out [b: Daisy Jones & the Six|40597810|Daisy Jones & The Six|Taylor Jenkins Reid|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1551887263l/40597810._SY75_.jpg|61127102] after this, since I believe my library has it.

A whole lot of people have to randomly die unexpectedly to keep the plot moving, but I still couldn't put this down. ( )

Amazing! 10 out of 10! Best book I read in 2020! The character development was so good. Don't read unless you are ready to have your heart broken and cry a bunch. Such a fabulous book. ( )

Good not great. I would read other books by this author but wouldn’t rush out to find them. ( )
