RaveThe Dallas Morning NewsSome of the author's most impressive writing comes in his stories about the World War II years, with Fonda serving in naval intelligence and Stewart in the Army Air Corps. Both men volunteered for duty … In addition to his extensive archival research for this book, Eyman interviewed Fonda's widow and children, Stewart's children and many of the actors and directors who had worked with both men. Jane and Peter Fonda's memories of their father helped him understand and write about a very complex man. The result is an entertaining, richly documented biography that includes eight pages of photos capturing the actors at home and at work.
PositiveThe Dallas Morning News...he should be proud of this fine book. While exploring the rise and fall of literary celebrity, it's also a compelling account of a twisted-genius grandfather.
