Eliza Doolittle. Holly Golightly. But to her most adoring fan, Audrey Hepburn was best known for her role as Mummy.In this heartfelt tribute to his mother, Sean Hepburn Ferrer offers a rare and intimate glimpse into the life of one of Hollywoods brightest stars. Audrey Hepburn, An Elegant Spirit is a stunning compilation of nearly 300 photographs, many straight from the family album and never before published- archival documents, personal correspondence, and mementos- even paintings and illustrations from the actress herself.Sean tells Audrey Hepburns remarkable story, from her childhood in war-torn Holland to the height of her fame to her autumn years far from the camera and the crush of the paparazzi. Sean introduces us to someone whose grace, charm, and beauty were matched only by her insecurity about her appearance and talent, and who used her hard-won recognition as a means to help children less fortunate than her own. With this unique biography, Sean celebrates his mothers history and humanity--and continues her charitable work by donating proceeds from this book to the Audrey Hepburn Childrens Fund.
