“Definitive…Journalist and playwright Michaud conclusively plots the course of Mineo’s life in a biography as dishy as it is astonishingly well researched. Everything from the on-the-set tales of Mineo’s friendships with James Dean and Natalie Wood to his affair with singer Bobby Sherman is given a beguilingly novelistic touch. Michaud’s delicate handling of conflicting accounts and widespread gossip resolves both Mineo’s sexuality and his enigmatic offscreen personality, revealing him to be an incredible talent who simply could not overcome his early typecasting.”
