A fascinating story about a late 19th- / early 20th-century black performer--"America's first black star"--which is both well-researched and very well told. Camille Forbes opens up the glamorous but also precarious and fraught world of early vaudevil ...more

I loved this biography--I don't often read Hollywood bios, but this one was fascinating for its account of the Hollywood world that Hepburn belonged to. But what I found most fascinating was the story of Kate's earlier history, with her feminist moth ...more

This is a very important book for anyone concerned with the ethics of the food we eat, particularly meat. I admire Michael Pollan's work--I think he has performed an incredibly important public service in alerting many people to the serious issues co ...more
