This is the second bio I have read on James Dean and it was a mix of filling in some of the holes but with an as abrupt ending as was his demise. Jimmy has to go down as one of the more complex characters of the many similar that become famous actors. His antics, orientation, and genius were a cut a bit different to say the least.

There is much detail provided here, sometimes it seemed too much but it did give a very good profile of these unusual man. More emphasis is put on his earlier years trying to establish himself in acting on many levels. By the time he makes Hollywood and what eventually made him, the author speeds up and detail is much more sketchy. He does not go into a great deal of detail on these three sets. And with in a few pages he is gone with a simple mention of the accident. It was a bit strange in concluding, much like the strangeness of his life. ( )
