9780099312819: Clint Eastwood: A Biography

For 30 years Clint Eastwood has been at the top of his profession, as an actor and director. This biography uses interviews with Eastwood, his friends and colleagues, to explore the contradictions between the generally perceived image of the man and the realities of his personality and career.

In 1992, when Unforgiven won director/star Eastwood the critical respect that had eluded him for a quarter-century, film critic Schickel was already a friend of 15 years. Their relationship, and a series of in-depth interviews conducted over five years, gives this biography a pleasing intimacy. Schickel believes Eastwood "has taken the presentation of the heroic male into country he has not previously ridden"; he makes a strong case for that idea in an admiring(but not fawning) book that lays the foundation for more objective works in the future. -- Christine Buttery
