Warner Books has just published Elizabeth, a new biography of screen legend Elizabeth Taylor, and I’ve got ten copies to give away, courtesy of the publisher. Here’s the scoop on the book, from Warner:

She has been written about many times, but never like this…

For more than six decades she has been part of our lives. An American icon, Elizabeth Taylor has been surrounded by fame and notoriety since childhood. Now acclaimed biographer J. Randy Taraborrelli looks past the tabloid version of Elizabeth’s life to the person she really is-and how she evolved from a child star to a woman in her own right.

At the heart of this impeccably researched work is the first fully realized portrait of Elizabeth Taylor’s family: her canny, controlling mother, who, from the moment she laid eyes on her baby, began plotting her success; and her father, often portrayed as distant, but whose connection with his daughter was far more complex than people knew. As Taraborrelli brings to life the people around Elizabeth and her rise in 1940s Hollywood, he reveals the qualities that made her a star, the associations that put her at the right place at the right time, and the ways in which she was singularly unprepared for life out on her own.

If you don’t want to wait to win, buy the book at Amazon.
