recently crowned kings, Gabor H. Wylie gives Russell Crowe fans
what they've been longing forthe stories that make up a lifetime,

Confidential is revealed as never before. From Crowe's New
Zealand roots to his emotional Oscar triumph, Wylie traces his

along the way. Imagine Crowe's campy portrayal of transvestite
Frank N. Furter in an Australian stage production of The Rocky
Horror Picture Show. Or the moment Crowe revealed to his

to university to study history as he had planned, he intended to
make his way as a performer. This is Russell Crowethe dedicated
musician, the acclaimed actor, the fascinating man.
