Interesting bio about an underused stage and screen actress.
Amazing strength of character to deal with illness and death in her family, as well as her own series of strokes at the age of 39.
Would have liked more background info about the theater/film work. Would have liked more analysis/examination of her acting.
Great photos.
Will send readers scurrying to the library in search of Neal's films.

After watch "Hud" recently, I was struck by Patricia Neal. She managed to steal the movie from Paul Newman. After that feat I was intrigued. What a life! This biography was well researched & written in a way that really captured Neal's voice. I felt emotionally caught up in her life. The author is clearly a fan, but the book never turned into a gush feast.
