The Symbol is the story of Wanda Oliver—an orphan child who became one of the great Hollywood stars of our time. Beautiful, redheaded, sexy, funny, she was the symbol of womanhood for millions. Her success was legendary, her personal life chaotic, her death, by her own hand, tragic.
"I think it succeeds admirably . . ."
Wirt Williams, NY Times Book Reviews
