Product description

Review

"Most of us aren't really interested in the real McQueen, we just want the tough guy from "Bullitt." Fortunately, author Marc Eliot isn't in that group. In "Steve McQueen: A Biography," readers meet a complex, haunted man who might not make many most-admired lists....Eliot doesn't pass judgment on McQueen. Instead, he essentially retells the classic American drama: a man coming up from nothing and but for a quirk of fate -- in McQueen's case, possession of a steely gaze that would do nothing on a stage but rivet a camera."--USAToday.com, 3 out of 4 stars
"As Marc Eliot reminds us, Steve McQueen was just eight weeks older than Clint Eastwood. He might be alive still, as prominent, laconic, and anti-heroic a screen figure as Clint, and maybe even a notable producer and director. Eastwood has won just about every prize there is, and he has made the journey that probably appealed to him the most--from a working-class kid to a movie cowboy to one of the most esteemed figures and authentic stars remaining in American show business. Eastwood is an auteur and a respectable American. McQueen was none of those things.... [Yet] you can't take your eyes off him. As an actor, he is more compelling and mysterious than Eastwood. "--David Thomson, "The New Republic
"
"A fine biography that makes us feel like we know and understand its subject." --"Booklist
""McQueen's life and the cultural context Eliot explores make for a good read." --"Library Journal
"
