I finally found some time in between all my school reading to read something uplifting and delightful. I have always loved Audrey Hepburn, and the more I read about her the more fondness I have towards her. How to Be Lovely is by no means a novel, but it’s filled with tidbits of Audrey and her philosophy on life. Audrey knew about the things that really mattered in life and strove to live her life by those principles. I admire Audrey and everything she did from Funny Face to UNICEF and my hope is to live my life not in her shadow, but in her philosophy.
There are several books out there about Audrey Hepburn. This is the first one I’ve read, and if you like Ms. Hepburn you should pick it up. There’s a book her son wrote about her that is supposed to be quite sensational called Audrey Hepburn, An Elegant Spirit. If you don’t know much about Audrey perhaps start with this one as somebody so close to her probably knew her better than any other writer could possibly research.
