Touching memoir

To know Fay Wray was to adore her. She had a joyous, jubilant personality and retained her can-do outlook to the end, living until she was 96 despite a life that offered more than her fair share of problems. In “Fay Wray and Robert Riskin, ” Victoria Riskin remembers her parents with warmth and a perceptible touch of melancholy … Wray’s diary entries, along with the adoring love letters Riskin wrote her when he was engaged in his war work, constitute the raw, mournful heart of their daughter’s touching memoir.
