He was a tough-guy Welshman softened by the affections of a breathtakingly beautiful woman. She was a modern-day Cleopatra madly in love with her own Mark Antony. For nearly a quarter of a century, Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton were Hollywood royalty, and their fiery romance-often called "the marriage of the century"-was the most notorious, publicized, and celebrated love affair of its day.

Shocking 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 Richard. But it is much more than a celebrity biography; it''s an honest yet sympathetic portrait of a man, a woman, and a passion that shocked and mesmerized the world.

Editorial Reviews

?[A] five-alarm blaze of a biography that enthralls like an Olympian epic. . . . The authors make an excellent case that each deepened the other?s craft. . . . A vivid portrait of this...two-career marriage on steroids.? (Philadelphia Inquirer)
