Author Info
Donald Spoto
Donald Spoto is the acclaimed author of 14 books, including internationally bestselling biographies of James Dean, Elizabeth Taylor, Marilyn Monroe, Alfred Hitchcock, Tennessee Williams, and Marlene Dietrich.
"Happily, Spoto's Grace is not one-note. Unhappily, in keeping with his subject's favorite accessory, his book wears white gloves. With fastidiousness Spoto corrects the sensational accounts of prior Grace chronicles and presents her not as a hot tamale but as a proper lady....[But t]he value of the book, however, is not in its confirmation or refutation of Kelly's fabled amours but in its penetrating analysis of her stage and screen performances."
"Donald Spoto...takes the unfashionable decision to deny anything that smacks of rampancy. That distinct clatter you can hear, as you turn the pages, is the sound o skeletons being crammed back into the closet....This maidenly approach on the part of the modern biographer has something refreshing about it."
From the Publisher
Annotation In this revealing and fascinating biography, Donald Spoto crafts an intimate new look at the life of the famed actress Grace Kelly. Spoto had a close friendship with Kelly, and he draws on his personal memories of the star, as well as dozens of taped interviews that have never before been made public. These conversations are not just with Kelly, but are also with friends who knew and loved her, including Carey Grant and James Stewart. Spoto traces her childhood roots in Philadelphia, to her days as an actress and model in New York and Hollywood, then finally to her reign as Princess of Monaco. He discusses her life with respect and honesty, offering a fresh and intriguing perspective on one of Hollywood's most captivating leading ladies.
