Abstract:

In this explosive biography, writer and investigative journalist Peter Thompson catches Nicholson in his unguarded, off-screen moments to examine the contradictions of his personality: secretive yet unashamedly brash; magnanimous but tight-fisted; shrewd, outrageous, ingenious, seemingly untouchable. Jack Nicholson reveals the inside stories behind his feud with Susan Anspach, the mother of his twenty-six-year-old son Caleb; the untold truth about his other children; and.

The extraordinary movie he wanted to make about all of them. It tells how Marlon Brando comforted him after the brutal murder of Jack's half-sister, Pamela, and why Nicholson continues to pursue a vendetta against her grieving husband. It discloses the intimate secrets of his stormy relationships with Anjelica Huston and Rebecca Broussard and reveals why they turned down his proposals of marriage. It exposes Nicholson as a spoiled playboy hell-bent on escaping reality.

With sleazy sex-and-drug binges with hookers and druggies. It tells the full story of how Nicholson and Brando were caught in a $6 million sting over a "good friend's" ranch-and-spa resort. It reveals for the first time Jack's disturbing relationship with his half-sister. Penetrating the private world of Jack Nicholson, Thompson paints a vivid picture of a brilliant and tormented man who inflicts great pain on his loved ones and ultimately on himself.
