NYT highlights some good books which are coming out this month, I have just added ‘Garbo’ by Robert Gottlieb to my Audible listening wish list and also ‘Solid Ivory: Memoirs’ by James Ivory which already came out. I am a big fan of the biographies and memoirs section.
‘Garbo’ by Robert Gottlieb (Farrar, Straus & Giroux, Dec. 7)
A veteran editor of The New Yorker and Knopf attempts to pin down the life of an actress known for her elusiveness. Greta Garbo stopped acting in her 30s and appeared in just 24 Hollywood films, yet left an outsize influence. Gottlieb traces her life from her early years in working-class Stockholm through her later years living as “a hermit about town” in New York, and includes clips from scholars, co-stars and critics that offer fresh perspectives on her life.
