During his heyday he was more popular than Charlie Chaplin and became the first screen actor to make a million dollars a year. But in 1921 Fatty was accused of the rape and murder of an actress he had met in San Francisco. Although he was later acquitted, the virulent press speculation Arbuckle received destroyed his career. "I, Fatty" imagines Arbuckle taking centre stage to recount his life story - from humble beginnings to dramatic downfall, and the result is an utterly compelling, highly original and beautifully written novel which deserves the widest possible audience.Hide synopsis

Interesting and captivating pseudo - autobiography of Fatty Arbuckle. Hard to imagine today that he was such a big star in the silent film era. Stahl constructs this "autobiography" around the known facts of Arbuckle's life, using imagined content from Arbuckle (as told to his butler). The book leads inevitably to the sordid events whcih resulted in Arbuckle going on trial 3 times for murder before being found innocent (too late to save his ruined name and career). A fun read which does open a door into the life of someone who is today a footnote.
