Private passionate and heartbreaking letters to Taylor— Furious Love sheds new light on the movies the sex the scandal the fame the brawls the booze the bitter separations and of course the fabled jewels It offers an intimate glimpse into Elizabeth and Richard's privileged world and their elite circle of friends among them Princess Grace Montgomery Clift the Duke and Duchess of Windsor Peter O'Toole Michael Caine Marlon Brando Rex Harrison Mike Nichols Laurence Olivier Robert Kennedy Tennessee Williams Noël Coward John Huston Ava Gardner the Rothschilds Maria Callas and Aristotle Onassis It provides an entertaining eye opening look at their films their wildly lucrative reign in Europe and in Hollywood—and the price they paid for their extravagant livesShocking and unsparing in its honesty Furious Love explores the very public marriage of Liz and Dick as well as the private struggles of Elizabeth and Rich. This turned out to be much better than I thought Instead of the usual gossipy trash one normally sees in celebrity biographies the authors stay even keeled and provide the reader with a chronological overview of the Richard BurtonElizabeth Taylor romance and marriage They don t really dive in too deeply but they were given access to the letters that Burton sent to Taylor throughout their life togetherI was surprised by learning just how deeply in love the two of them were with each other which is something one really wouldn t know given the media s past coverage I always thought it was just one of those publicity seeking unions but they were truly soulmatesBoth Burton s and Taylor s alcohol and drug dependencies are covered with depth given to Burton s insecurities So not a bad volume to read on the beach during the summerBook Season Summer
