About the book:

Lillian Hellman was the most daring and original playwright of her time. In spite of her three volumes of highly acclaimed memoirs, Hellman has remained an enigma because of her need to conceal her real life and to invent a legend.

Carl Rollyson reveals - through newly discovered diaries, letters, interviews and state department files - the truth about Hellman's controversial political activities, her personal feuds, and her numerous tempestuous love affairs.

Learn the real story of how Hellman and Dashiell Hammett formed their liaison; new information about her lawsuit and feud with Mary McCarthy; and insight into how Hellman attempted to influence a circle of acolytes to defend her reputation.
