At the peak of her career following her towering performance in Kill Bill Volumes 1 and 2, Uma Thurman was an intriguing figure: the beautiful muse of Quentin Tarantino whose struggle with body dysmorphia syndrome often rendered her crippled with insecurity. This biography, the first to be published, tells the whole story: the ups and downs of Uma’s acting career; her two marriages, to fellow actors Gary Oldman and Ethan Hawke; embracing a new role as devoted mother to daughter Maya and son Roan; and her triumphant return to form as the wronged bride on a rampage of revenge in Kill Bill.
“An engaging read…astutely paced and comprehensively researched…crammed with quirky details. Sutherland and Ellis, both veterans of celebrity journalism, know how to serve up a readable biography… Sutherland and Ellis are professional storytellers and in their hands Uma Thurman’s life shapes itself into a tale well told.” Anna Lynskey, The Guardian / The Observer ~ Read the full review
“A worthy addition to the biography genre.” Library journal
