More than a mere gloss on the legend, this is a passionate, intelligent, and sensitive ressessment of Dean's life and career. Hoskyns make Dean come alive as no other writer has ever done, revitalizing the shallow cardboard figure portrayed by the media and revealing a Dean rarely seen--compelling, talented, winsome, and, above all, human. 123 black-and-white-and-29-full-color-photographs.
