The historic first-ever novel on the woman who was married to Chaplin for 34 years.
Barnes & Noble
is the story of an alluring and enigmatic young woman who longed for her father's love and stole the heart of an older man, none other than the world's first superstar Charlie Chaplin. Deeply researched and richly imagined, Only Oona
brings the woman to life for the first time, exploring her relationships with JD Salinger, Orson Welles, Gloria Vanderbilt, Carol Matthau, and Truman Capote, and the series of events that lead her straight to Chaplin's door.
Publication will coincide with the blockbuster film Babylon
, which opens nationwide on January 6, staring Tobey Maguire as Charlie Chaplin.
