Product Description

Review

'[An] insightful study.' --Independent on Sunday

'Bray, writing with the wit, skill and aplomb which made his recent biography of Connery s fellow 60s icon, Michael Caine, such a riveting read ... As should any biographer worth his salt, Bray takes particular delight in challenging the assumptions, apocrypha, received wisdom and PR nonsense which plagued previous biographies, and resolves to expose the roots of the false rumours of Connery s alleged propensity for off-screen violence, including towards women ... This may be the preeminent Connery biography even without the word auto in front.' -- Empire, 5-star review >> 'Christopher Bray's biography offers detail Sean's own book missed, and chronicles his journey from weightlifter to global icon with the enthusiasm of a lifelong fan.' -- Mail on Sunday >> 'Bray is an eloquent and inventive writer ... Bray has written a compelling study of stardom and what it signifies, both to the star and to his followers ... Bray - a witty, elegant writer ... His book amounts to an exceptionally vivid and searching account of what it is to be a fan.' -- Simon Callow, Guardian >> 'Bray valliantly tries to fill the gaps in our knowledge ... provides an entertaining resume of the man's career.' -- Sunday Telegraph >> 'This greatly entertaining book... a meditation on the weirdness of stardom and power of fantasy.' -- Frances Wilson, TLS >> ' Fascinating' -- --Total Film
