For the past twenty-five years, no one has been better at revealing secrets than Oprah Winfrey. On what is arguably the most influential show in television history, her guests often the biggest celebrities in the world - have bared their love lives, explored their painful pasts, admitted their transgressions, revealed their pleasures and explored their demons. In turn, Oprah has allowed her audience to share in her own life story, opening up about her sexual abuse and discussing her romantic relationships, weight problems, spiritual beliefs, charitable donations, and her strongly held views on the state of the world.
After a quarter of a century of the Oprah-isation of America, can there be any more secrets left to reveal? The answer is yes.
Kitty Kelly gives us an unvarnished look at the stories Oprah has told and the life she's lead. Kelley has talked to Oprah's closest family members and business associates. She has obtained court records, birth certificates, financial and tax records, and even copies of Oprah's legendary confidentiality agreements. She has probed every aspect of Oprah Winfrey's life, and it is as if she has written the most extraordinary segment of The Oprah Winfrey Show ever filmed - one in which Oprah herself is fully revealed.
Even greatness needs to be examined and put under a microscope. Kitty Kelly shows both sides of Oprah as they have never been shown before. In doing so she has written a psychologically perceptive and meticulously researched book that will surprise and thrill everyone who reads it.
