Stenn has found out as much to know about Clara Bow as it is given to mortals to know; he takes an intelligent approach, neither too solemn nor too flip, and the story he has to tell is almost always engrossing. (The New York Times)
Illuminating and unforgettable. (Los Angeles Times)
She was Marilym Monroe decades before Marilyn. How movingly David Stenn has written the story of this hilarious and heartbreaking star. (Dominick Dunne)
Clara Bow, star of numerous silent films and early talkies, personified sex as fun, earning the sobriquet "The It Girl." Notoriety ended her career before she was 30. "In this sensitive biography, readers will find a vibrant woman to empathize with, as well as an engrossing history of early picture-making," praised PW.
