Almost fifty years after his death on September 30, 1955, this new biography looks at the short life of James Dean. His life was full of conflict, both professionally and personally, and the author spends much time discussing Dean’s involvement with homosexual actors. Roberts reads the biography like a newscast, telling the facts and acting out some of the parts. The British terms may strike the listener as strange considering James Dean was an American. Nevertheless, this biography tells all--Dean’s acting career, his personal life, and the events that shaped the idol who “lived fast and died young.” M.B.K. © AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 02/ JAN 03]
