Cary Grant: A Brilliant Disguise
(Simon & Schuster, $35)
“As Scott Eyman’s masterful biography reveals, being ‘Cary Grant’ required A Brilliant Disguise. This is a riveting, scrupulously researched account of how Archie Leach, a penniless runaway from a broken home, willed himself into becoming one of the most iconic stars in Hollywood history.
In examining Grant’s incredible feat of self-invention and the steep price the actor paid for his extraordinary success, Eyman once again demonstrates why he is one of our finest biographers.”
— Mark Griffin, author of All That Heaven Allows: A Biography of Rock Hudson
