A well-balanced mix of nonfiction, general fiction, romance and mystery in the lightweight softcover format preferred by many readers. Selections are a blend of international authors, chosen for the broadest appeal. There are also some carefully selected backlist titles by proven favorite authors.Julie Christie has enchanted moviegoers for four decades. Born on her father's tea plantation in India, she became an icon of the 1960s through films such as Darling (for which she won an Oscar) and Doctor Zhivago. In the 1970s Christie teamed up with her lover, actor Warren Beatty, and earned an Oscar nomination for McCabe and Mrs. Miller. But by the early 1980s she had left Hollywood for her Welsh smallholding, concentrating on humanitarian causes and more serious films. Hayward's biography fills in the blanks of Julie Christie's intriguing life and career.
