About the Author

Brigitte Bardot starred in her first role in Crazy for Love in 1952, and gained international recognition for her role in the 1957 film And God Created Woman. Retiring from film at the age of thirty-nine in 1973, she has since dedicated her life to campaigning for the protection of animals through her foundation. She currently lives in France.

"A critical commentary regarding the justifications for the domination [of animals] in contemporary society." --Livres Hebdo

"Uncompromising." -- ICI Paris

"A captivating testimony. . . . This book gives a closer look at the life of B.B., not the star adulated, but the other: the lover, the protector of animals, she who works tirelessly so that wherever they are on earth, these sentient beings are a little better treated." --Tele Star Jeux

"A fascinating, balanced memoir. . . . These confessions have the force of the upmost frankness." --L'Abeille 54

Instinctive, free, and moving, she goes back on her experience as a star, her daily life in contact with her animal companions, and her struggle on their behalf. . . . At 83, she's shedding tears from her battles and wondered about the impact her nearly half-a-century of activism has had."--L'info-journal, Fondation Brigitte Bardot

"She was a sex symbol, a legend, an epic personality . . . [and] a woman of heart, mobilized daily for our animals. And that's not cinema."--Midi Libre
