The quirky, rebellious, and elegant mind of Lillian Hellman shines in Kate Reading's portrayal of her life. Hellman, best known for her plays THE LITTLE FOXES and THE CHILDREN'S HOUR, reveals a bohemian life peopled by such friends as Hemingway, Fitzgerald, and her lover, Dashiell Hammett. As a war correspondent, Hellman reflected the nightmares she saw and lived. As a woman, she drank and explored, fought and charmed, ultimately questioning herself and everyone she knew. Alternately bold and delicate, visionary and matter-of-fact, Hellman's life portrayed here repels and fascinates. D.J.B. (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/SEP 03]
