Though she made more than 550 recordings and starred in 39 movies--not to mention her own TV show--the story of Doris Day's life has never been told. In this long-awaited, definitive biography, author Kaufman takes the reader to the epicenter of American popular culture, from the 1940s to the 1980s. While Day symbolized virtuous America--especially in her heyday, the 1950s and early 1960s--both she and that era are still perceived as being far more innocent and carefree than they really were. Indeed, she was in many ways the opposite of her image as "the girl next door." She was also a real-life Cinderella who found a series of princes who proved far less than charming. Kaufman reveals Day's demons while emphasizing the credit she deserves as an artist.--From publisher description.
