When legendary but reclusive movie star Evelyn Hugo agrees to grant an interview about her forthcoming auction to raise money for breast cancer, the world anxiously waits for her words. But why would she request that Monique Grant, a relatively unknown writer, pen her first public dialogue in years? Even Monique is dumbfounded.
Showcasing her vast physical charms in combination with her relentless drive to succeed, Hugo left Hell’s Kitchen in the dust and rose to join Hollywood’s elite. Her presence both on film and in person was riveting, but, with seven husbands, her career was rife with controversy. The fact that she chose to live her later years in seclusion only feeds the public’s frenzy for details.
Having written several insightful and important articles while working for an online news publication, Monique jumps at the chance to join the more prestigious magazine Vivant. In her new position, she feels underutilized, knowing that her current fluff assignments will hardly set the publishing world on fire. When Evelyn Hugo demands her services, Monique is nervous but eager to comply. Once she discovers the star’s real plan for her, Monique is conflicted but certain that her own future is golden.
Selected as an Amazon “Best Book of the Month,” The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo was written by Taylor Jenkins Reid.
