The enigmas surrounding one of Hollywood's best-known cults has at last been decoded, thanks to the publication of this unvarnished overview of "the lost farmboy from Indiana," James Dean, the "other" (after Marilyn Monroe) most famous movie star of the 1950s.
Written to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the violent death of a star who lived fast, died young, and became a legend, it's the recipient of the coveted BEST BIOGRAPHY award from the 2016 Los Angeles Book Festival. The most insightful and unvarnished book to have emerged from the wreckage that killed him, it was compiled after fifty years of input from James Dean's friends, lovers (male and female), and enemies.
Even before his fiery death at the age of 25, Dean had become the widely marketed yet widely misunderstood symbol of the inarticulated rage of America's rebellious youth. This book describes, based on hundreds of eyewitness accounts, how he did it.
