Audrey Hepburn, An Elegant Spirit: A Son Remembers

Audrey Hepburn, An Elegant Spirit - Sean Hepburn Ferrer Audrey Hepburn was timelessly lovely, and a gentle spirit like we'll never see again, but her son can't write. Generous pictures of divine Audrey in her off-stage life (rather than movie stills, which overfill most books about her) save the book from Sean's mediocre-at-best narration. To give you a sample of what I'm talking about, check out page 104, which features a picture of Audrey late in pregnancy, and Sean's inane comment "There I am- in her tummy." I'm sure Mr Ferrer is a nice guy, but the text should have been ghost written by somebody who appreciates that people don't really want to hear too much about him, rather his mother and her life.
