Somebody

In his bookSomebody(The Reckless Life and Remarkable Career of Marlon Brando), author Stefan Kanfer cobbles his bio of Brando together with fact, anecdotes, and rumors. It is an interesting book but too often Kanfer relies on unreliable sources such as Brando's own autobiography or books of questionable veracity such as Brando Unzipped and Brando for Breakfast. When Kanfer refers to Peter Manso's definitive bio of Brando, he perhaps unwittingly is inviting an unwelcomed comparison. The troubled youth, the tortured soul, the dysfunctional family...blah, blah, blah are all topics delved into by Kanfer. However I'm not sure we learn anything new here. The author does shed a much needed light on Brando's tragic last years. This is ground no one has covered up until now.
