If you are interested in the life and death of 1980's slain Playboy Playmate of the Year, Dorothy Stratten, more than half of this book is devoted to her. Not only does it include the important role she played in Bogdanovich's life, but it is a descriptive "biography within a biography". I highly recommend this book on that account, even more so than Bogdanovich's biography of her, "The Killing of the Unicorn." The reason being that Andrew Yule uses unbiased evidence to describe the cirucumstanses of her incredibly amazing, but tragically short life. It also gives the LAPD account of her gruesome murder, which according to Mr. Yule is not accurate in the "Killing of the Unicorn". If you saw the recent television biography of Dorothy Stratten and you want to know more, I cannot recommend this book enough.
