Taylor biography -- but not yet

<p>Mainstream has signed up world rights in a biography by David Bret of Elizabeth Taylor.

The book will not appear until after Taylor's death. A glance at the blurb suggests why Mainstream will not publish until the subject cannot sue: the publisher promises a portrait including "many spiked interviews and information which other biographers have shied away from revealing".

Bret's previous books, mostly for Robson, include gossipy lives of Joan Crawford, Marlene Dietrich, George Formby and Morrissey.</p>
