With a combination of newly uncovered archival material, fine writing, and a rich appreciation of West's unique blend of comedy and come hither appeal, Emily Wortis Leider has created a serious and seamless biography as well as a cultural history. From her birth in Brooklyn, to her Broadway battles with censorship, to the years in which she took Hollywood by storm, West comes to vibrant life as the driven, dynamic performer who made herself a movie star and sex symbol the likes of which America had never seen -- and changed our culture forever.
