Melanie's Book, the first-ever biography of 1930s superstar
Deanna Durbin, will be released on July 1, 2022 By Lyons Press.
The 1930s was a magical age in Hollywood, with Shirley Temple and Mickey Rooney, Bette Davis and Clark Gable lighting up the silver screen. But Deanna Durbin's fame surpassed them all. Born in Canada, Deanna was “discovered” by starmaker Eddie Cantor, producer Joe Pasternak and director Henry Koster, and she quickly became the world’s most celebrated star. She saved Universal Studios from ruin, she was a favourite of Winston Churchill and Anne Frank, and she became the highest-paid woman in America.

"Gall can be captivating. Her musical capabilities can sell out venues alone, and her acting skills put her on the stage with many other great talents."
“Sweet and nostalgic, she’s like a Disney princess from the Lower East Side.”
