Summary:

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

“If you’re looking for a book to take on holiday this summer, The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo has got all the glitz and glamour to make it a perfect beach read.” —Bustle

From the New York Times bestselling author of Daisy Jones & the Six—an entrancing and “wildly addictive journey of a reclusive Hollywood starlet” (PopSugar) as she reflects on her relentless rise to the top and the risks she took, the loves she lost, and the long-held secrets the public could never imagine.

Aging and reclusive Hollywood movie icon Evelyn Hugo is finally ready to tell the truth about her glamorous and scandalous life. But when she chooses unknown magazine reporter Monique Grant for the job, no one is more astounded than Monique herself. Why her? Why now?

Monique is not exactly on top of the world. Her husband has left her, and her professional life is going nowhere. Regardless of why Evelyn has selected her to write her biography, Monique is determined to use this opportunity to jumpstart her career.

Summoned to Evelyn’s luxurious apartment, Monique listens in fascination as the actress tells her story. From making her way to Los Angeles in the 1950s to her decision to leave show business in the ‘80s, and, of course, the seven husbands along the way, Evelyn unspools a tale of ruthless ambition, unexpected friendship, and a great forbidden love. Monique begins to feel a very real connection to the legendary star, but as Evelyn’s story near its conclusion, it becomes clear that her life intersects with Monique’s own in tragic and irreversible ways.

“Heartbreaking, yet beautiful” (Jamie Blynn, Us Weekly), The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo is “Tinseltown drama at its finest” (Redbook): a mesmerizing journey through the splendor of old Hollywood into the harsh realities of the present day as two women struggle with what it means—and what it costs—to face the truth.

    An amazingly heartbreaking novel that delves into so many controversial topics. You'll hate Evelyn Hugo but you'll also admire her. I liked this one a lot more than I thought I would.

    My book club enjoyed this book. It is different from our other choices. We enjoyed the “ stand up” kind of woman Evelynnwas and her “ no regrets” attitude. She went for what she wanted.

    I checked out this book not realizing that there was a LGBT story line which I felt was more of a lecture. I felt that Monique’s interview with Evelyn was like Evelyn reading a draft story - there was no interaction when Evelyn was narrating. The story did bring out points about how Hollywood, especially in the old days, spins the stories of actors and their personal lives to benefit themselves and their productions. With social media, it seems there is more transparency nowadays. I never really felt sympathetic to Evelyn or that she could experience “true love.” I felt Monique’s storyline wasn’t very well developed. But I did like how she resolved her situation at the end. This book was decent, but not one I would recommend or say was a great novel. Just so-so.
