Summary
"For the first time, Garry O'Connor reveals Guinness's full story, including how the actor was shaped by his illegitimacy, his strained relationship with his mother, and his search for stability through the Roman Catholic Church. His biography is backed by impeccable research, including interviews with Guinness himself, and contains startling new information about Guinness's childhood, his secret relationships, and the fears that haunted him. This book is a unique portrait of the man behind the indelible performances."--Jacket
