    The first full-length biography of the farm girl from North Carolina who became a Hollywood goddess. It recreates a life of glamour, hedonism, and self-destruction, painted in bold colors on the canvas of big-studio Hollywood in the forties and fifties, exotic locations, the Rome of La Dolce Vita, and the Spain of bullfighters and dictators. Her stunning beauty and lack of inhibition led to a tumultuous private life and a long search for love, including marriages to Mickey Rooney, Artie Shaw and Frank Sinatra, and relationships with Hemingway, Howard Hughes, George C. Scott, and famous matador Mario Cabre.--From publisher description.

    The book is really more of a book about the interviewing of Ava Gardner, than it is a book about Ava Gardner herself.

Never before has the childhood of Ava Gardner been explored as it is in Cannon's book. Ms. Cannon has spent more than 20 years interviewing the people who knew Ava in childhood, including family members, teachers, friends, and is the first book that accurately portrays the early years of this world-renowned star.
