Scott Eyman, writing for the Wall Street Journal called it...
...a serious book about a serious woman, less a biography of an actress than a biography of her career
If Mr. Callahan's book is not the last word on this great actress, it will certainly stand as an invaluable critical guide.
The book positions Stanwyck where she belongs—at the very top of her profession—and offers a close, sympathetic reading of her performances in all their range and complexity. The book also features twenty-four illustrations, a filmography, and a bibliography.
Barbara Stanwyck: The Miracle Woman is now available from UPM. The book is also featured this month at Turner Classic Movies Book Corner. Enter the sweepstakes to win a free copy of the book.
