4.0 out of 5 stars A fascinating insight into the world of Mabel Normand, April 22, 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: Mabel: Hollywood's First Don't-Care Girl, the Life of Mabel Normand (Paperback)
This book gives an excellent insight into the life and times of Mabel Normand - one of the first women of cinema. Her life was complex and peppered with tragedy. This book fully explores all the hearsay about Mabel's downfall, and looks further into the roots of the controversy surounding the Taylor murder case, amongst other scandals of her time. I would thoroughly recommend this book to anyone.

No, I really don't think so.
Yours sincerely,
Stephen Normand

I have to agree with you here, Stephen. What was your original name again? Rycowitch? Stephen Normand Rycowitch? Sorry, I keep forgetting. I've never been clear on why you changed your name.
But this is a poorly documented "biography" that is as strange as any you'll ever come across. On that we do agree. I find it incomprehensible that a writer would spend months gathering material and not disclose her sources to her readers. Not a note, not a bibliography and not an index.
Is this a work of fiction?
