'After reading this affectionately candid biography, it is hard not to echo Olivier's response on hearing of Burton's death: "He was so young, so young"' Daily Mail
A man of contradictions, Richard Burton's life and remarkable career are revealed by a writer who knew him from 1968 up to Burton's last film. Recounting Burton's deepest and often darkest thoughts and secrets, as well as hell-raising stories quashed by the Hollywood system, such as affairs with Monroe and Lana Turner, being caught in a brothel with Errol Flynn and a fist fight with Frank Sinatra, Munn offers a stunning portrait of a great man. From nursing Burton through an epileptic seizure to witnessing Burton's part in East End gang violence, this is an intimate and deeply moving biography. Writer, actor, director and former journalist and Hollywood publicist, Michael Munn, has written twenty-one books, including the best selling John Wayne: The Man Behind the Myth and the acclaimed Jimmy Stewart: The Truth Behind the Legend
