Christopher John Farley first interviewed Halle Berry in 1991, at the beginning of her career. Now the Time Magazine Senior Editor provides the first in-depth look at Berry, the actress, the woman, and the history-maker. Abandoned by her father at a young age, a childhood in Cleveland, Ohio marred by racism and an abusive relationship. The odds against Halle Berry were extraordinary. But no one could have dreamed how far her determination would take her. From a breakthrough role in Spike Lee's JUNGLE FEVER to her Emmy Award-winning performance in HBO's INTRODUCING DOROTHY DANDRIDGE, Berry exhibited a tenacity that would eventually lead to MONSTER'S BALL and her best Actress Oscar, the first African American actress to receive the honour. Christopher John Farley provides a biography that is something more: with the sure sense of cultural analysis he displays in his weekly columns and reviews in Time magazine, INTRODUCING HALLE BERRY is an absorbing and inspiring biography.
