This year, Uma Thurman proved once again that she is box office gold with her starring role as the vengeful bride in Quentin Tarantino’s Kill Bill Volumes 1 and 2. She emerged as a major celebrity in her first Tarantino project, Pulp Fiction, and followed that surprise hit with such big-budget productions as Batman and Robin. Uma Thurman’s personal story is as remarkable as her stardom. Her grandmother was a baroness. Her mother, Nena, was introduced to her first husband, LSD guru Timothy Leary, by the surrealist genius Salvador Dali. Nena’s second husband and Uma’s father, Robert F. Thurman, is the Western world’s leading authority on Buddhism. In this fascinating biography, Uma Thurman is revealed in her own right as a gifted and fascinating woman poised to remain a bright star for many years to come.
