The Forgotten Sister of Fred Astaire – a bio-fiction
Four of five stars given
This was an interesting endeavour for me. Cassidy has written a fictional biography of a real celebrity. Adele is the fictionalized life of Adele Astaire. Based loosely on interviews that Astaire herself recorded for a memoir that didn’t materialize, Cassidy used those memories to fashion a story.
And what a compelling read! Hard to put down. Even more difficult to keep in mind that it wasn’t all reality. I thoroughly enjoyed this glimpse into a truly iconic, extremely talented celebrity duo.
Thank you Nicola Cassidy for this book!
