The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo (2017)

A story of a powerful relationship between two women in a society where it was considered taboo.

Evelyn’s story is one of being an African American woman in a predominantly white male-dominated field. It is one of having a Cuban background in a white woman‘s world. Being a bisexual woman in an age when attraction to women was demonized by the whole society. It is one of concealing oneself for ambition, one of deciding which one takes precedence, one of growing old, and one of never having known whether your choices were right or wrong.

Evelyn Hugo has lived a life in the public eye, but she is full of secrets. Only she knows what happened behind the scenes in her long career of scandals and highly-publicized heartbreaks. Just like the fictional world of the book longed to know the truth– so did I. Reid and Evelyn’s habit of giving you just enough to leave you wanting more was incredibly exciting. Throughout, we are encouraged to wonder why someone like Evelyn Hugo would specifically request a relatively-inexperienced journalist like Monique. Why Monique? What is Evelyn hiding?

“This book is also fiercely and unapologetically socio-political and we love that. Evelyn’s story is one of being a woman in a man’s world. “

The more I got to know Evelyn, the more I fell in love with her. She has made a lot of controversial decisions during her career, but she knows it and she also knows she’d probably do it all again. She’s played the Hollywood game, dated famous men to further her career, and used her body to get what she wants. She has experienced the full force of the industry’s sexism and, in some ways, capitalized on it. She is deeply flawed and aware of it. She has traded important aspects of her identity for more fame, more roles, more money. She was a badass Cuban woman working in an industry that didn’t like women to be badass or Cuban. She manipulated and she lied. I stayed fully engrossed in the story of Evelyn Hugo – and of Monique Grant – from the opening chapters when Evelyn demanded an interview with only Monique, through decades of Hollywood in all its shimmering ugliness, right until the ending’s final reveals.
