Overview:What Fresh Lunacy is This?: The Authorized Biography of Oliver Reed - Oliver Reed may not have been Britain's biggest film star - for a periodin the early 70s he came within a hairsbreadth of replacing SeanConnery as James Bond - but he is an august member of that small band ofpeople, like George Best and Eric Morecambe, who transcended theirchosen medium, became too big for it even, and grew into cultural icons.Forthe first time Reed's close family has agreed to collaborate on aproject about the man himself. The result is a fascinating new insightinto a man seen by many as merely a brawling, boozing hellraiser. Andyet he was so much more than this. For behind that image, which all toooften he played up to in public, was a vastly complex individual, a manof deep passions and loyalty but also deep-rooted vulnerability andinsecurities. Why was a proud, patriotic, intelligent, successful anderudite man so obsessed about proving himself to others, time and timeagain?Although the Reed myth is of Homeric proportions, he remains a national treasure and somewhat peculiar icon.Praise for other books by Robert Sellers:Hellraisers: The Life and Inebriated Times of Richard Burton, Richard Harris, Peter O'Toole, and Oliver Reed: 'Sowonderfully captures the wanton belligerence of both binging andstardom you almost feel the guys themselves are telling the tales.'
