Biographies and Memoirs - Large Print Standing Order Plan

A Mix of bestselling and well-reviewed biographies and memoirs — including: historical biographies, celebrity biographies and memoirs, and inspiring narrative memoirs relating fascinating and compelling experiences of intriguing people.



More Than Love is a memoir of loss, grief, and coming-of-age by a daughter of Hollywood royalty. Natasha Gregson Wagner’s mother, Natalie Wood, was a child actress who became a legendary movie star, married to Natasha’s stepfather, the actor Robert Wagner. But Natalie’s sudden death by drowning off Catalina Island at the age of forty-three devastated her family, made her stepfather a person of interest, and turned a vibrant wife, mother, and actress into a tragic figure. A tale of a daughter coming to terms with her grief, as well as a portrait of a famous mother and a vanished Hollywood.
