Summary

Now a major motion picture starring Academy Award nominee, Annette Bening, and BAFTA Award winners Jamie Bell and Julie Walters. On Digital Download from 11th March and DVD & Blu-ray 19th March.
On 29 September 1981, Peter Turner received a phone call that would change his life. His former lover, Hollywood actress Gloria Grahame, had collapsed in a Lancaster hotel and was refusing medical attention. He had no choice but to take her into his chaotic and often eccentric family's home in Liverpool.
Liverpool born and bred, Turner had first set eyes on Grahame when he was a young actor living in London. Best known for her portrayal of irresistible femme fatales in films such as The Big Heat, Oklahoma and The Bad and the Beautiful, for which she won an Oscar, Grahame electrified audiences with her steely expressions and heavy-lidded eyes, and the heroines she bought to life were often dark and dangerous. Turner and Grahame became firm friends and remained so even after their love affair had ended. And it was to him she turned in her final hour of need.
Film Stars Don't Die in Liverpool is an affectionate, moving and wryly humorous memoir of friendship, love and stardom.

Wonderful story.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

A heartwarming story of how a Liverpool family helped a relative stranger in times of need. Filled with Liverpudlian humour the story has been well written by the author who nursed Gloria Grahame during this difficult time. The perfect book which will make you laugh one minute and cry the next.
