 A painstakingly researched biography offers new information about the star's turbulent life, her rocky marriages and affairs, and her troubled relationship with her daughter.

"Here, too, is the disturbing story of the cover-up surrounding the death of Bette's second husband (proven by the newly discovered transcript of the coroner's inquest); her possible role in the brain damage of her adopted daughter; the bizarre behavior of her fourth husband, the actor Gary Merrill, and the vicious custody battle for their son, Michael; her pursuit of much-younger men as she entered her sixties; the astonishing truth behind her daughter B.D.'s scathing "tell-all" memoir." "Perhaps most touchingly, More Than a Woman shows us a Bette Davis considered "over the hill" by Hollywood but whose sheer tenacity brought her a major comeback and allowed her to give some of her best performances into her seventies; and the ailing legend, deserted by her beloved daughter, who flew to Spain despite excruciating pain to drink in the adoration of her fans one last time only days before she succumbed to cancer." "By turns illuminating, inspiring, shocking, and poignant, More Than a Woman is a biography you will not easily forget.
