The Second Book

Hi everyone!

Like I said yesterday, the another book which I bought (and I was anxiously waiting for it) is about my favorite actress Audrey Hepburn. I already said here before how she is important for me, cause she inspires me to be a better person each day and I believe she was a great and incredible being human (or even a big and lovely soul here in Earth).

Then, who’s better that her son to talk about her and to tell us a little about how she was in her private life? This book is exactly this: a mix of her biography, writing by her eldest son, Sean Hepburn Ferrer, where he also wrote his memories about her as his mom. In this adorable book we can see some personal materials about Audrey H., like family photographs, letters, documents and other special things, which every fan would love to see.

Oh, the book title is “Audrey Hepburn, An Elegant Spirit” (2005), and I have to confess that when I bought it, I did know it was a very special book, however when I got it in my hands I almost cry (really!), cause it’s very beautiful and sensitive, we can see that it was wrote with much love, respect, care and soul (if you can understand me).

Below I just add some photos of the front and back cover, and one internal picture. And to finish this post I only want to say Thank You Mr. Sean H. Ferrer, for this magical gift to all people who admires your Mom! I don’t even have words (in English or Portuguese) to express what I want to say, only love ❤

Tips of books

Hello darling!!

Tonight I’ll give you a simple tip of two books which I’m using in my monograph to conclude the graduation course in the university and I’ve already used one of them here, in the first posts…

And why I will talk about them? Because they are about classic cinema, of course!

The first one is about the movie “Breakfast at Tiffany’s”, its adaptation from novel to cinema, the movie backstages, some stories and a lot of interesting things about the movie. The book also talks about Audrey Hepburn’s career beginning until she starred this film as Holly Golightly. Another interesting theme in this book is how women were represented in the 50’s and 60’s in American cinema. Give a look in a photo of the book (in Brazilian version) and in some pictures which are inside it. All the informations about the book are after the photos (in the original version, in English).

  • Original title: Fifth Avenue, 5 A.M. – Audrey Hepburn, Breakfast at Tiffany’s, and the dawn of the modern woman
  • Author: Sam Wasson
  • Year of publication: 2010
  • Publishing house: Harper

The second tip of book is a Marilyn Monroe’s biography. And I’m indicating this book because you should know that some of her biographies are quite sensationalists. But, reading this one (that a big fan of her, indicated to me), you can see all the stories and legends about this cultural icon treated in a way more serious and credible. Besides, you can realize how the big movie stars were built by Hollywood. Like the another book, the photos are in the Brazilian version of the book and the informations are after.
