ISBN: 9780374298357
Published: Farrar, Straus and Giroux - December 7th, 2021

Famed editor (The New Yorker, Simon and Schuster) Robert Gottlieb takes a valiant stab at the life of the illusive film actress Greta Garbo (1905-1990).   With a luminous face loved by the camera, Garbo was discovered working as a model and part-time actress in her native Sweden. She came to Hollywood in 1926, made 26 movies for M-G-M and promptly quit the business in 1942 only to the spend the rest of her life walking the streets of New York, traveling the world and living very much alone.  Her beauty and talent were never questioned, but Garbo was, as Gottlieb implies, one of the most uninteresting interesting people to grace Hollywood.
