"Jack's Life is informative and searching about Nicholson's fascinating and Rabelaisian private life. Bursting from a cocoon of shyness and sexual repression (and fueled by drugs and expanding fame), Nicholson romanced some of Hollywood's most stunning women, including Michelle Phillips and, in his longest and certainly deepest relationship, the formidable Anjelica Huston. (And not them alone, as dozens of models and actresses can attest.) From the beginning he has been shrewd about career and money, and he is now probably the richest and most highly paid actor in film history - and the toughest negotiator. His approach to fatherhood, his avoidance of marriage, even his selection of film roles, intriguingly echoes Jack's own history of illegitimacy, fatherlessness, and relationships with women." "On screen or off, Jack Nicholson is never less than compelling to watch - or to read about. Jack's Life is film biography the way it is meant to be done - detailed, probing, massively researched, and passionately written. In Jack's Life Patrick McGilligan has produced the definitive life of a man who defines the peak of American acting, and American fame."--Jacket.
