This is the first uncensored biography to investigate our era's
most celebrated, distinctive, and confounding filmmaker --
revealing the controversial private life behind the iconic public
After almost forty years in the spotlight -- as a comedian,
author, director, amateur musician, and professional neurotic --
Woody Allen is a living legend whose prolific achievements are all
but unparalleled in cinematic history. To fans, his films have
always represented a sort of ongoing autobiography, through which
Woody bared his self-deprecating, over-analytical soul to the
world. It was not until 1992, when his stormy private life turned
into sensational headlines, that the cracks in the familiar persona
emerged. The lines separating art and fact, myth and reality, and
public and private life became increasingly blurred.
The first book to answer all the lingering questions surrounding
the "Woody-Mia Scandal", The Unruly Life of Woody Allen also
investigates Woody's first two marriages and gets the inside scoop
on the financing of his films. In the final analysis, it has a
great deal to say about the cult of celebrity in America -- how it
is our own infatuation with the rich and famous that has made it
possible for this supremely talented man to shrewdly manipulate
both the media and the moviegoing public.
