About the book:

Woody always distrusted biographers because he felt that this would destroy his public persona. But in 1992, when his stormy private life turned into sensational headlines, the cracks in the familiar persona appeared. Meade has tracked down scores of people in Allen s life who have never before spoken to an Allen biographer: boyhood pals; Brooklyn neighbors & teachers; colleagues Buddy Hackett & Mel Brooks from his early career as a TV writer; actors Maureen Stapleton, Max von Sydow, & Bob Hope; director Sydney Pollack; & the film reviewers who have followed his career. Details the numerous examples of art imitating life in Allen s films, particularly the saga behind his marriage to the adopted daughter of his lover, Mia Farrow.
