‘ 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
