A sensational, full-scale biography of one of America's most famous actors and relentless flirts. From Easy Rider to About Schmidt and Anjelica Huston to Lara Flynn Boyle, this book will be warts and all, and then some.
An in-depth biography of Jack Nicholson, the multigenerational movie star and sex symbol. He has had countless lovers but cannot keep a healthy relationship. Women like Angelica Huston and Lara Flynn Boyle fall madly in love with him, and yet he pays for hookers. Here, Edward Douglas delves deep into Jack's wounded life to discover the secret behind his magnetism.
When Jack Nicholson was a child, he was told that his mother, 14 when Jack was born, was his sister, and that his grandmother was his mother. He didn't find out the truth until he was 37. Could that be the basis of his inherent mistrust of women? He has had countless lovers, but remains aloof and sometimes hostile. He is adept at seduction and is, women agree, a great lover, but even his most serious, long-term relationships have been full of turmoil. In Jack: The Great Seducer, Edward Douglas explores the wounded psyche of one of America's most recognisable, iconic celebrities.
