"Oprah" is the first comprehensive biography of one of the most influential, powerful, and admired public figures of our time, by the most widely read biographer of our era.
From the Publisher:
An extensively researched biography of Oprah Winfrey examines the personal life and career of the influential icon and discusses her place in modern American culture.
Annotation:
Kitty Kelley has previously topped the bestseller charts with her unauthorized, tell-all biographies about Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, Nancy Reagan, the Bush family and the British royal family, but some might suggest she has never encountered a subject with as much power as Oprah Winfrey. Amazingly, this comprehensive chronicle of Winfrey's remarkable life is the first full-length biography of one of the most beloved and influential television personalities in American history. Because of her renowned generosity and relentless positive spirit, Oprah has attained the stature of a living saint among her millions of fans, but if anyone can find some tarnish on her halo, it is certainly Kelley, who spent more than three years conducting hundreds of interviews with various people who have at one time or another been satellites in the Winfrey universe. Oprah herself had no involvement with the book, and it seems unlikely that she will be adding this title to her popular book club.

Praise

"Perhaps it's too late for a Winfrey tell-all. [Oprah] has already said way too much about herself, to the point that this book abounds in gruesome displays of vanity....After some hollow authorial claims of respect and admiration, OPRAH just aims for the jugular. It doesn't draw blood." - Janet Maslin 04/11/2010

"A Kitty Kelley biography of Oprah Winfrey is one of those King Kong vs. Godzilla events in celebrity culture....[But] Kelley's pen is not dripping poison so much as slightly curdled milk....[OPRAH] is a compendium of minutiae...and some of it is delightful." - Lauren Collins 04/19/2010

"[A] brave and audacious book....Winfrey's refusal to be interviewed seems to have inspired, rather than deterred, Kelley. She interviewed 850 sources for OPRAH, including major 'gets,' such as Winfrey's father, and used the thousands of interviews the rags-to-riches cultural icon has granted over the years to paint a portrait that becomes less flattering as Winfrey's fame and influence grows." - Susan Carpenter 04/15/2010
