    2018 Audie Award Finalist for Multi-Voiced Performance

    From Taylor Jenkins Reid, "a genius when it comes to stories about life and love" (Redbook), comes an unforgettable and sweeping novel about one classic film actress' relentless rise to the top - the risks she took, the loves she lost, and the long-held secrets the public could never imagine.

    Aging and reclusive Hollywood movie icon Evelyn Hugo is finally ready to tell the truth about her glamorous and scandalous life. But when she chooses unknown magazine reporter Monique Grant for the job, no one in the journalism community is more astounded than Monique herself. Why her? Why now? 

    Monique is not exactly on top of the world. Her husband, David, has left her, and her career has stagnated. Regardless of why Evelyn has chosen her to write her biography, Monique is determined to use this opportunity to jump-start her career. 

    Summoned to Evelyn's Upper East Side apartment, Monique listens as Evelyn unfurls her story: from making her way to Los Angeles in the 1950s to her decision to leave show business in the late '80s and, of course, the seven husbands along the way. As Evelyn's life unfolds - revealing a ruthless ambition, an unexpected friendship, and a great forbidden love - Monique begins to feel a very a real connection to the actress. But as Evelyn's story catches up with the present, it becomes clear that her life intersects with Monique's own in tragic and irreversible ways. 

    Written with Reid's signature talent for "creating complex, likable characters" (Real Simple), this is a fascinating journey through the splendor of Old Hollywood into the harsh realities of the present day as two women struggle with what it means - and what it takes - to face the truth.

    Are telenovelas your thing? If not, don't bother

    The only positive thing in this book is Evelyn's bisexuality and the fact that she was a badass who did everything to get what she wanted.
    Aside from that, this book is a recollection of the woes of innumerable relationships and countless uselessly dramatic incidents.
    Unless you're prepared to suffer through toxic, disfunctional and abusive relationships, homophobia and death, (and the near constant mention of "making love", which is arguably the worst part of the story) I suggest you stay clear of this telenovela in (audio)book form.

    a bit overhyped

    the premise is definitely interesting, however, as the story goes on it becomes quite predictable and a bit cliche.

    Lighthearted, dynamic, fun

    This story is build on interesting, lively characters which I almost couldn't remember were fictional at the end of the novel!

    A fascinating portrait of what the life of celebrities really is, or rather was, during Hollywood golden era, but also an empowering story about womanhood and the exploration of love and intimacy, all told through a very captivating story.

    This book is truly touching and beautiful

    I have rarely read a novel that had both enthrawled me as much as it has made me think, cry and feel all at once.

    Unglaublich interessant und bewegend!

    Mir hat die Story sehr gut gefallen. Das Buch wurde auf Social Media von vielen Personen empfohlen und ich war zuerst unschlüssig, ob ich es lesen möchte. Ich habe mich für das Audiobook entschieden und bereue es nicht. Es war ein wunderbares Hörerlebnis.
    Die Geschichte, die Charaktere und die Themen, welche behandelt wurden, waren sehr interessant und haben zum nachdenken angeregt. Ich denke dieses Buch wird zu meinen Favoriten gehören.
    Die Sprecher haben auch einen tollen Job gemacht.
    Sehr empfehlenswert.
