Courtney's 1955 biography of her mother, 'Laurette.'
Ms Kear fills in many blanks; also, there are some very interesting
photos, quotes & reviews.
I am amazed no one has written a review for Amazon, one month
after publication. I shouldn't be surprised, as I purchased the
Kear book from Amazon--was never solicited for my opinion!
McFarland--I realize is a rather modest publisher--but may reap
financial gains by publicizing 'Laurette' here in NYC. I haven't
seen or read anything.
Amazon should try to find long out-of-print audio recordings
by Laurette Taylor and make available to theatre/history enthus-
A real treat are the many photographs of the star (at all stages of her life) and the voluminous, informative chapter footnotes.
This tome gives the reader a real sense of the celebrated actress who made theater history with such starring vehicles as "Peg o'My Heart" (which she recreated in a 1922 film adaptation) and "The Glass Menagerie."
This illuminating biography is well worth reading.
