Sam Irvin celebrates the glories of old Hollywood and musical theater in his biography of 20th-century show business's spiritual matriarch, Kay Thompson. Thompson, a headlining performer in her own right, guided some of music and cinema's hottest stars in the 1950s, including Marilyn Monroe, Frank Sinatra and Lucille Ball. Thompson then reinvented her career by becoming a bestselling author and hobnobbing with presidents and Beatles. Irvin balances the all-star ensemble with anecdotes that keep his bouncing subject on center stage in KAY THOMPSON: FROM "FUNNY FACE" TO "ELOISE."


"Mr. Irvin has done his homework and then some, and delivers the copious details of Thompson's early career....[He] writes with intelligence and insight about the development of ELOISE, Thompson's book about that impish girl who lived, seemingly without adult supervision, in the Plaza Hotel." - Dwight Garner 11/11/2010
