Our November print edition featured a roundup of Hollywood biographies, from American Rebel: The Life of Clint Eastwood to How to Be a Movie Star: Elizabeth Taylor in Hollywood.
The books we covered were mostly in the “classic” Hollywood camp (Doris Day, Grace Kelly), but you’re in luck if you’d rather read about contemporary movie stars. December 1, Transit Publishing (the force that brought us Unmasked: The Final Years of Michael Jackson) will release Brangelina: Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie by celebrity journalist Ian Halperin (also the author of Unmasked). The small Montreal-based publishing house is hoping for a hit—Brangelina will have a 100,000 copy first printing.
According to Transit, the book will include “exclusive revelations and personal anecdotes.” Get ready for “shocking new information about superstar Jolie” and “startling discoveries about [her] past.”
Also look out for Kiefer Sutherland: Living Dangerously in January 2010 and Little Girl Lost: Money, Fame and Britney Spears in April, both from Transit.
Do you like to read biographies of celebrities? Are there any superstars out there who still need a tell-all. . . or has it all been done?
