Natalie Wood: A Memoir by Her Sister

Only Lana Wood could have written this most intimate record of her sister Natalie Wood’s tempestuous life and tragic death. A warm but unflinchingly candid account of a great star’s passionate love affairs, violent fights, stormy marriages, bitter divorces, and of her controversial death by drowning at the age of forty-three, stunning a nation that adored her.

Lana Wood fans will probably be interested in her experience on the set of Diamonds Are Forever, revealing an affair with Sean Connery. Ultimately, this book is also as much about Lana herself as it is about Natalie. Forever in Natalie’s shadow, Lana herself never developed her own life and identity, everything in her life is connected with Natalie in some fashion and she spends virtually her entire life seeking Natalie’s approval and acknowledgement.
