Monique is not exactly on top of the world. Her husband, David, has left her, and her career has stagnated. Regardless of why Evelyn has chosen her to write her biography, Monique is determined to use this opportunity to jumpstart her career.
Summoned to Evelyn’s Upper East Side apartment, Monique listens as Evelyn unfurls her story: from making her way to Los Angeles in the 1950s to her decision to leave show business in the late 80s, and, of course, the seven husbands along the way. As Evelyn’s life unfolds—revealing a ruthless ambition, an unexpected friendship, and a great forbidden love—Monique begins to feel a very a real connection to the actress. But as Evelyn’s story catches up with the present, it becomes clear that her life intersects with Monique’s own in tragic and irreversible ways.
Written with Reid’s signature talent for “creating complex, likable characters” (Real Simple), this is a fascinating journey through the splendor of Old Hollywood into the harsh realities of the present day as two women struggle with what it means—and what it takes—to face the truth.
About the Author
The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo is the first book by Taylor Jenkins Reid that I have read and I loved it.
The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo is a fascinating tale of an aging Hollywood bombshell. She was married seven times. And you think...wow that is a lot of husbands. But as you read the tale, each marriage makes perfect sense in Evelyn's intriguing life story.
Monique Grant is a writer for a popular New York based magazine. She is still climbing the ladder so everyone is surprised when Evelyn requests Monique to write her biography. Monique is fascinated as Evelyn's tale unfolds and she learns a lot about life from Evelyn. But at the end, Evelyn has a quite the surprise for Monique. Can Monique deal with the news enough that she can properly write Evelyn's story?
You will love this book! I highly recommend The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo.
