MISS D & ME: The Reviews Are In

Miss D & Me is released today but the first reviews are already in, and they’re raves:
“I read this book in one day – a must read for all Bette Davis Fans”  — Marcie Bianco, Vanity Fair.
“A delightful new book by Davis’ one-time assistant, who recounts untold tales from the Oscar-winning actress’ free-wheeling final years,”  The Daily News
 
“Poignant with touches of humor, “Miss D & Me” is a fitting fade-out for an actress who made it look easy to stay tough,” the Associated Press.
 
“None of us knew or loved Bette Davis during her later years more than Kathryn Sermak. This is a wonderful book about one of the greatest women I ever knew–and one of the greatest actresses who gave us all so very, very much. You’ll enjoy this read and realize what a truly great woman Bette Davis was–and an inspiration to women of all ages.”―Robert Wagner

“What a great insight into the last chapters of an Extraordinary woman’s life. Kathryn Sermak tells it like it was: with candor and style–certainly the Bette Davis I was fortunate enough to know!”―Greg Gorman, celebrity photographer
 
 
I devoured every page – James Morris
