"This significant book is the first full length biography of one of the most influential women in Hollywood. It spans a momentous time in terms of the film industry and, with superior scholarship, examines that era through a different and important lens."--Cari Beauchamp, author of "Without Lying Down"This book makes an important contribution to the study of the relationships among journalism, publicity, and celebrity, skillfully connecting issues that have impact on Parson's life and career and thoroughly documenting her rise to extraordinary power. The research is extensive and fills in details that will interest even those who know parts of the story well."--Charles Affron, author of "Lillian Gish: Her Legend, Her Life"More than just an addictively engrossing study of the infamous gossip columnist, Barbas' "The First Lady of Hollywood: A Biography of Louella Parsons, is a deftly written historical, political and cultural chronicle of the United States during the first half of the 20th century."--Susan King, Los Angeles Times
