Read full description of the books Laura:This is Laura's book, although when the story opens, she has been viciously murdered. Most of it is told by three men -- the three men who knew her best: gossip columnist Waldo Lydecker -- Laura was the only person he had ever loved; Shelby Carpenter, Laura's fiance, who knew more about her death than anyone suspected; and Detective Mark McPherson, whose duty was to reconstruct the life of the victim -- but not to the point where he fell in love with her. Here is the secret of Laura's death ... and her life.
Read information about the authorVera Caspary, an acclaimed American writer of novels, plays, short stories and screenplays, was born in Chicago in 1899. Her writing talent shone from a young age and, following the death of her father, her work became the primary source of income for Caspary and her mother. A young woman when the Great Depression hit America, Caspary soon developed a keen interest in Socialist causes, and joined the Communist Party under a pseudonym. Although she soon left the party after becoming disillusioned, Caspary's leftist leanings would later come back to haunt her when she was greylisted from Hollywood in the 1950s for Communist sympathies. Caspary spent this period of self-described 'purgatory' alternately in Europe and America with her husband, Igee Goldsmith, in order to find work. After Igee's death in 1964, Caspary returned permanently to New York, where she wrote a further eight titles. Vera Caspary died in 1987 and is survived by a literary legacy of strong independent female characters.
