Abstract:

Based on more than a thousand interviews with stars, directors, producers, designers, friends, family, business associates, employees, and others and on extensive research among previously undisclosed court, business, medical, and studio documents, Liz portrays Taylor's entire life and career in fascinating, revealing detail. Heymann shows us her very public escapades and her most private moments - frequently through the words of those who have known her best.

Here are the highs and lows of her movie career and the intimate circumstances of her marriages to Nicky Hilton, Michael Wilding, Mike Todd, Eddie Fisher, Richard Burton, Senator John Warner, and Larry Fortensky. Here, too, is the truth about Taylor's father and her friendships with leading men Montgomery Clift, James Dean, and Rock Hudson, as well as with the eccentric Malcolm Forbes and Michael Jackson. From her illnesses, injuries, weight swings, and battles against drug and alcohol dependencies to her sexual exploits, diamond-studded luxury, and tumultuous relationships with husbands and lovers, this is the enormously contradictory and glamorous life of Hollywood's last great star.
