This audiobook and its ensemble of narrators bring mid-twentieth-century Hollywood to life. Stand-out performer Alma Cuervo, portraying the title character, Evelyn, excels in her understanding of the reclusive washed-up starlet. Desperation, anger, and love have all been part of Evelyn's life, and Cuervo's performance delivers them all. Robin Miles captures the vulnerability of Monique Grant, a writer plucked from obscurity to write Evelyn's tell-all biography who begins to find some personal strength through her interviews with Evelyn. Julia Whelan, in a sly, catty tone, voices the sounds bites of the tabloids that dogged Evelyn throughout her life, never leaving one bit of it untouched. The story is one of pure triumph and tragedy--an absolute must for fans of Old Hollywood. E.E.S. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2017]
