Reading today about the book "True Grace: The Life and Times of an American Princess" by Wendy Leigh I've met some interesting words. What does the author mean saying about Grace' betrayal? Anybody can say?
"Celebrities arenít only in the news during their lifetimes. Some of them ó like Marilyn Monroe, Jackie Kennedy, and Lady Di ó keep being reinvented in the public imagination as new biographies or juicy bits of unrevealed information surface long after their passing.
Such is the case with the fairy-tale Hollywood-goddess-turned-princess Grace Kelly, whose cometary superstar career from High Noon (1952) to High Society (1956) morphed into a 26-year reign as Princess of Monaco until her tragic death in an auto accident in 1982. Widely-viewed as a wildly-desirable but unapproachable ice queen, but with smoldering rumors to the contrary, she has been the subject of several biographies, but none as thorough and revelatory as this seasonís True Grace: The Life and Times of an American Princess by noted celebrity biographer Wendy Leigh.
Leighís exhaustive research and 100+ new interviews and undiscovered resources have revealed much of previous speculation about the princessís life and love to be true, and more. Some of it is fascinating (her later romances, after her marriage), some disturbing (her personal betrayal of a close friend).
Throughout, the writing is clear, articulate, and witty where it needs to be without overwhelming the story it is trying to tell ó a model in both approach and execution for an historical biography..."
