Blonde Venus


Blonde Venus

Рейтинг: 
Madou is the most beautiful woman in the world. Discovered in a Berlin cabaret in the roaring twenties, she is brought to the glamour of Los Angeles. She becomes a superstar of the silver screen and Hollywood's darling, but nothing perfect lasts forever. The cost of beauty is always high, for those who have it and those who live in its shadow. The weight falls on her daughter to untangle the complicated truths of being ordinary beside an extraordinary mother, a woman who has bent and broken and skewed her perception of reality, a woman adored by the world, but from whom her daughter longs to escape. Evocative and deeply moving, Blonde Venus is based on Marlene Dietrich's glittering life, a dramatic novel set in Hollywood's golden age, that tells the story of mothers and daughters and of time's war against beauty - and the unbearable pain of a woman when beauty is the only game in town. Previously published as Mirror, Mirror.
