Yet another local Santa Barbara talent is making headlines. Award-winning journalist Kathleen Sharp is releasing a new and improved edition of her biography on the king and queen of old Hollywood. Mr. and Mrs. Hollywood: The Entertainment Empire of Edie and Lew Wasserman outlines the lives and legacies of Mr. Wasserman, the chairman of Universal Studios, and his wife Edie.

Sharp’s book gives readers a stroll down the classic red carpet of 20th-century Hollywood when the Wassermans ruled the silver screen. This eBook-formatted re-release, sponsored by BBC/Audio Go, also celebrates the 100th birthday of Mr. Wasserman.

Sharp’s biography, labeled “dramatic and enthralling” by Kirkus Review, was lauded by Vanity Fair and New York Newsday, and also became a documentary in 2004.

Sounds like a good read—just in time for awards season, too!
