 Elizabeth Taylor Resource eStore - Elizabeth
As Taraborrelli brings to life the people around Elizabeth and her rise in 1940s Hollywood, he reveals the qualities that made her a star, the associations that put her at the right place at the right time, and the ways in which she was singularly unprepared for life out on her own.
While Elizabeth's eight marriages to seven men have been widely publicized, this author examines the psychological and emotional roots of each relationship, including her abusive marriage to Nicky Hilton, her attraction to swashbuckling Mike Todd, and the complex, incendiary Taylor-Burton love affair that continued for decades and never truly died.
Taylor's last movie was the 1994 live-action classic "The Flintstones," and poor health has kept her even from making appearances on behalf of her beloved AIDS charities.

 Elizabeth Taylor's relentless Englishness - TLS Highlights - Times Online
Born Elizabeth Coles in 1912 in Reading, she was educated at the Abbey School (here it is conventional to genuflect to the influence on Taylor of another Abbey old girl, Jane Austen).
Taylor, by contrast, is hard-headed: “It is seldom safe to confide in lonely people”, she points out briskly in At Mrs Lippincote’s, “better to trust in busy, popular people, who have no time for betraying one and no personal need to do so”.
Taylor’s early heroes, and villains, somehow lack the sex-appeal we are supposed to find in them: simultaneously prissy and pompous, they often seem culled either from the Trevor Howard, stuffed-shirt school of masculinity, or from the smarmier David Niven mode.

 Literary Encyclopedia: Elizabeth Taylor
Elizabeth Taylor, novelist and short-story writer, was born at Reading, Berkshire, on July 3rd, 1912, the daughter of Oliver Coles, an insurance agent, and Elsie, née Fewtrell.
Taylor’s work was greatly admired by other writers – figures as diverse as Elizabeth Bowen, Angus Wilson and Kingsley Amis – but few academic critics took much notice of it.
One of Taylor’s abiding preoccupations was with displacement and dispossession, with the threats and the opportunities afforded by the insecure tenure of one’s living space, and such themes had a special momentum in the 1940s; the characters in her early novels are f
