When people think about Marlon Brando, they think of the film star, the hunk and the scandals. Susan L. Mizruchi finds the Brando others have missed: the man who collected four thousand books; the man who rewrote scripts, trimming his lines to make them sharper; the man who consciously used his body and employed the objects around him to create believable characters; the man who used his fame to foster American Indian and civil rights. From Brando's letters, audiotapes and annotated screenplays and books-many never before available-Mizruchi gives us a complex person whose intelligence belies the school dropout. She shows how Brando's embrace of foreign cultures and outsiders led to brilliant performances in unusual roles, fostering empathy on a global scale. In portraying a fuller Brando, Mizruchi portrays a more fascinating man than the one we thought we knew.

La nostra recensione

Biographers have often highlighted Marlon Brando's eccentricities. But in this sympathetic portrait, Mizruchi plays up his intellectualism: Brando was an autodidact with a library of 4,000 books, not to mention a great editor of his own lines. -- Rebecca Rose, Best Books of 2014 - Financial Times ...there is much to enjoy here for the confirmed Brando fan. -- Mail on Sunday ... this exhilarating new biography homes in on the kind of details that any serious Brando fan will devour like a starving man in the desert. -- Antonio Quirke, Summer Reading - Financial Times Engrossing biography...Some great photos, too. -- The Bookseller ...this always interesting, addictive book... -- Financial Times
