Abstract:

"From growing up the son of alcoholic, philandering parents to his recent public agony as the father of a convicted killer, Marlon Brando has lived a life beset by personal demons. Behind the myth, beneath his immense fame and fortune, he is a troubled man whom few people really know. For the first time, Brando unveils him whole: from the height of his talents to the depths of his despair; his sexual compulsions, the endless years of psychotherapy, the girlfriends who've committed suicide, his eating disorders, his notorious psychological manipulations, his lifelong love/hate relationships with his children (legitimate and not), his involvement with the radical American Indian Movement, and his controversial seclusion in Tahiti. Gripping, astonishing, and utterly revealing, Brando is both a towering achievement and exactly the biography that its subject so richly deserves."--BOOK JACKET.
