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.
