With an introduction by Dotti that reveals Audrey's private side and three photo-filled chapters organized by decade, the book captures the actress as she strolls around the city alone and with family and friends, walks her Yorkie, Mr. Famous, has breakfast in Piazza Navona, visits the local florist, and more. The book also contains set photographs of the films she made during her Rome years (Roman Holiday, War and Peace, The Nun's Story, Breakfast at Tiffany's) and of the famous clothes and accessories that helped create her iconic look. Irresistible as the actress herself, Audrey in Rome opens the door to Hepburn's personal world.

    Henny had just graduated from high school when the Germans invaded Lithuania. Her care-free life rapidly changed from a life of privilege to a living hell. Simply because she was Jewish. 
    The horrors inflicted upon the Jews of Kovno, taken place in the old forts built during Czarist Russia, are not as well known as what happened in the German Nazi camps during World War II. 
    Henny recounts her beautiful life in Kovno before the invasion by the Nazis when she and 35,000 other Jews were put in the ghetto. We hear about the acts of cruelty done to her family and friends. How can one describe seeing friends and relatives ripped from their lives and being cruelly and viciously murdered? 
    Travel with her to the filth and stench of the Kovno ghetto and the Stutthof concentration camp, and walk with her on her death march. Hear about the shoes that miraculously saved her. 
    Henny’s story is one of courage, hope and the will to live. It is the heart-breaking story of surviving the most horrible experiences imaginable. Hopefully, her story will inspire those in dire conditions and remind us of what we as humans are capable of doing.

    A vivid oral history of how Andy Warhol and his superstars revolutionized the art world and the nature of celebrity in the mid-1960s. Spanning from 1965 to 1966, two years that could be considered the pinnacle of Andy Warhol’s creative output, Speeding into the Future features firsthand accounts of life inside the Silver Factory. Powered by a steady supply of amphetamines, Quaaludes, and other drugs, the artists and misfits of the Factory crowd generated Warhol’s controversial films and art while their own star-quotients rose and declined—and as they fell in and out of love with one another.   During this period, Warhol created the notion of the “It Girl” by declaring debutante Edie Sedgwick the 1965 “Girl of the Year” and predicting her skyrocketing yet short-lived fame; he introduced German-born singer Nico to Lou Reed and John Cale of the Velvet Underground, hosting their rehearsals at the Factory; and codirected, with Paul Morrissey, his most commercially successful film, Chelsea Girls, featuring Nico, Brigid Berlin, Ondine, and other superstars. Speeding into the Future includes revelatory images snapped by Billy Name and other photographers as Bob Dylan visited the Factory, and goes behind the scenes of Warhol’s films of Ondine, Ultra Violet, Taylor Mead, and Viva. In this powerful chronicle based on her documentary—newly available from libraries via the Kanopy streaming service—Catherine O’Sullivan Shorr captures the events of these dizzying, outrageous years through the words of those who lived through them.
