Reading Elizabeth Taylor

Hang on to your out-of-print copies of Elizabeth Taylor: My Love Affair With Jewelry. They are now selling online for up to $1,999. It’s currently the most popular Taylor book on Alibris.

There were dozens of books about Taylor and various sources have weighed in on their favorites (more will surely come):

Books To Help You Remember The Great Elizabeth Taylor — NPR

Elizabeth Taylor’s life was a true page-turner USA Today

16 Elizabeth Taylor books, scandals includedL.A. Times

Every one of the lists includes My Love Affair with Jewelry (says NPR’s Linda Holmes, “If you don’t have Elizabeth Taylor’s campy, frothy tribute to her bauble collection on your coffee table, you are really missing out.”)

Also included on each list is the recent book on the Taylor/Burton romance, Furious Love, which Holmes calls a “soapy, delicious and highly literary double biography.”

Tomorrow, the  authors are scheduled to appear on The Early Show (CBS) and an ABC 20/20 special with Barbara Walters.

For our money, the best description of the book came from Kayleigh George, HarperCollins Library Marketing.
