Audrey Hepburn, An Elegant Spirit: A Son Remembers by Sean Hepburn Ferrer

In an era of Hollywood icons, no star shined brighter than Audrey Hepburn. Her charm, her grace, her frail humanity and, of course, that stunning face delighted moviegoers across the world. On-screen and onstage she dazzled millions as Gigi, Eliza Doolittle and Holly Golightly. But to her son Sean she was simply Mummy.In the first insider portrait of Audrey Hepburn, Sean Hepburn Ferrer offers an intimate glimpse into the life of Hollywoods most celebrated actress. In this emotional and candid memoir, Sean tells his mothers remarkable story, from her childhood in war-torn Holland to the height of her fame to her autumn years far from the camera and the crush of the paparazzi. It is a rare look at Audrey not from the photographers lens, but through the eyes of the son who adored her.Audrey Hepburn, An Elegant Spiritfeatures nearly three hundred photographs, documents and artwork by Audrey herself, many of which have previously been unavailable. In this unprecedented memoir, Sean Hepburn Ferrer remembers the actress the world adored as only a son can.More than a Hollywood biography,Audrey Hepburn, An Elegant Spiritis about the relationship between a son and his mother. Sean introduces us to an Audrey who was as profoundly sad as she was beautiful. Helpless to change the cruelties of the world and powerless against her own insecurities, Audrey was a devoted mother to Sean -- my best friend, he calls her -- and his brother, Luca. And when they were older, they were proud to see their mother use her fame to help the children of the world who were in need. As the spokeswoman for UNICEF, Audrey brought worldwide attention to the tragic lives of millions of impoverished children. And now Sean Hepburn Ferrer continues that work with the Audrey Hepburn Childrens Fund (www.audreyhepburn.com), to which he has donated his proceeds from this book.
