He was the Amadeus of Hollywood, the Oscar Wilde of Broadway--and the most wildly self-destructive personality ever to become an American household name. This first full-scale, illustrated biography of the consummate eccentric, Oscar Levant, is as inexhaustibly entertaining as the enfant terrible himself. 16 pages of photos.
