"Vanessa Redgrave, an award-winning actor from a prominent theatrical family, is known for both her stage and film successes and her political engagement. In Vanessa, author Dan Callahan provides a meticulous critical assessment of her career while rounding out her biography with details of her family, her marriages, and the controversies aroused by her activism. Callahan "refreshingly eschews gossipy tabloid fodder" (Booklist) while shining the spotlight on Redgrave's acting technique and achievements. This absorbing and informative portrait will please her admirers and general fans of film and theatre." Biography and Memoir August 2014 newsletter

This book was less about Vanessa herself and more about her acting family and about the parts/characters she played in theatre and movies. It wasn't what I was looking for.
