9780061562853: Furious Love: Elizabeth Taylor, Richard Burton, and the Marriage of the Century

A tough Welshman, he was softened by the affections of a breathtakingly beautiful woman: she was a modern-day Cleopatra madly in love with her own Mark Antony. For quarter of a century, Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton were the king and queen of Hollywood.

Yet their two marriages to each other represented much more than outlandish romance. Together, Elizabeth and Richard were a fascinating embodiment of the mores and transgressions of their time and even luminaries like Jacqueline Kennedy looked to them as a barometer of the culture. The enduring glamour, grandeur, drama and bravado embodied in the couple gave rise to the type of rabid gossip and wide-eyed adoration that are the staples of today’s media.

Using brand-new research and interviews – including unique access to Taylor herself, the Burton family, and Taylor’s extensive personal correspondence – this ultimate celebrity biography is the gripping real-life story of a fairy-tale couple whose lives were even grander and more outrageous than the epic films they made.

Book Description HarperCollins Publishers Inc. Paperback / softback. Book Condition: new. BRAND NEW, Furious Love: Elizabeth Taylor, Richard Burton, and the Marriage of the Century, Sam Kashner, Nancy Schoenberger, He was a tough-guy Welshman softened by the affections of a breathtakingly beautiful woman. She was a modern-day Cleopatra madly in love with her own Mark Antony. For nearly a quarter of a century, Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton were Hollywood royalty, and their fiery romance--often called "the marriage of the century"--was the most notorious, publicized, and celebrated love affair of its day. Shocking and unsparing in its honesty, Furious Love explores the very public marriage of "Liz and Dick" as well as the private struggles of Elizabeth and Richard. But it is much more than a celebrity biography; it's an honest yet sympathetic portrait of a man, a woman, and a passion that shocked and mesmerized the world. Bookseller Inventory # B9780061562853
