Reviews

"Schwartz does a magnificent job of resurrecting Curtis, reintroducing readers to a man who was, in his time, one of the theater's biggest stars. A well-researched, lively biography."--Booklist

"Schwartz's intriguing portrayal of celebrity, status, and desperation illuminates the underbelly of an exciting, rapidly changing time."--BookLife
