Reviews

"This audiobook and its ensemble of narrators bring mid-twentieth-century Hollywood to life. Stand-out performer Alma Cuervo, portraying the title character, Evelyn, excels in her understanding of the reclusive washed-up starlet. Desperation, anger, and love have all been part of Evelyn's life, and Cuervo's performance delivers them all. Robin Miles captures the vulnerability of Monique Grant...Julia Whelan, in a sly, catty tone, voices the sounds bites of the tabloids that dogged Evelyn throughout her life...The story is one of pure triumph and tragedy--an absolute must for fans of Old Hollywood. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award."
