I loved this book. Elisabeth Taylor has always fascinated the public. Sometimes we love her, and sometimes we hate her. Her romantic life alone is enough to keep you interested and still reading. This book was published in l981 and is old and turning yellow. It is well worn because it has been read by so many people. I am sure you will enjoy reading it as much as I did. Genny
