PORTRAIT OF A SOAP STAR is the biography of daytime drama actress Emily McLaughlin, or better known to soap opera viewers as Nurse Jessie Brewer of GENERAL HOSPITAL. This biography is a portrait of her life which illustrates the laughter & the trauma that she experienced as a soap star for over 30 years. A great deal has been written about soap operas & the problems that are dealt with by the soaps including the identification that viewers feel with certain characters & their problems. It is the drama of human losses, triumphs & the prevailing human spirit, in which people search for values in need to relate them to themselves. PORTRAIT OF A SOAP STAR was written for the soap opera fan, the faithful viewer of the soaps & as a final tribute to Emily McLaughlin, my mother. TV GUIDE'S MICHAEL LOGAN: "...Today's twentysomethings don't have a clue as to her true importance, but those who really know soaps will really miss her. And so will our mothers & grandmothers. A gracious & gifted throwback to the Hollywood that once was, McLaughlin will hold a place in daytime history..."
