Why We Selected The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo
As usual, we put this to a vote in our Virtual Book Club Facebook Group. I recently finished listening to the audiobook, Daisy Jones and the Six, by the same author and have had this book on my TBR (to-be-read) list ever since.
This author creates such well-developed and believable characters that after reading her work, people often search to see if the stories actually happened. They’re not real.
Author Taylor Jenkins Reid partly based this book upon Ava Gardner’s memoir. Check out Ava Gardner: The Secret Conversations here. I also found this Vanity Fair article fascinating and reminiscent of the relationship between Evelyn and Monique.
