Product Details


“Richly researched . . . Being able to bask in Newman’s Own insights is enough to bring this one-of-a-kind star back to life, however briefly. And to miss him terribly again when the final page is turned.”USA Today

“Levy reveals the chinks . . . while still deeply appreciating the man.”People
“Eloquent and perceptive. . . Levy’s meticulously researched biography is as revealing a portrait as one could hope for.”Christian Science Monitor

“A rich account . . . It’s a testament to Levy’s storytelling that he can make leaf lettuce sound as dramatic as working with Robert Redford or Tom Cruise. . . . Paul Newman: A Life reads like a breeze.”Cleveland Plain Dealer

“[A] sturdy appreciation . . . Like his films and the charities bearing his name, this well-researched book reminds us of why we loved having him here.”New York Daily News

“Crisp, smart, and incisive, and the pages fly.”Boston Phoenix

“A sweeping tribute to Newman.”Time
“An excellent, warm overview of Paul Newman . . . A marvelous measure of the man.”Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

“Fascinating . . . A rich, serious, yet thoroughly readable biography of a major American movie icon.”The Oregonian (Portland)
“Tabloid journalism has made actors understandably wary of the press in general. They might be forthcoming if more writers focused on the acting, as Levy does here so perceptively.”Kansas City Star
“An illuminating look at one of the true greats, full of humor and intelligent analysis—highly recommended.”Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
