Review:

'Burt Lancaster had the most interesting star's career in Hollywood's most fruitful period. In Buford, he has the biographer he deserves. Categorical. Imperative.' Christopher Bray, The Sunday Times 'It does not surprise me to learn from Buford that her frequently monstrous hero was a cultivated man.... He thoroughly deserves the close attention his scrupulous biographer has afforded him.' Paul Bailey, The Daily Telegraph 'Kate Buford has written as fine a showbiz biography as one could possibly expect.... [her] book is a model of its kind - a slow read because the writing is tight-packed - and, warts and all, she has done her subject proud.' Hugh Leonard, The Irish Times 'Rarely for a film actor - and even more rarely for a star - Lancaster is revealed as more complex than the sum of his parts; the result is the most interesting book about an actor since The Man Who Kept the Secrets.' Chris Petit, The Guardian

About the Author:
