James Dean's short life - and tragic death - and his three film Hollywood career have made a seemingly disproportionate impact on the collective worldwide consciousness of the late twentieth century. In the sensitive and original reassessment of Dean's life and career, Barney Hoskyns succeeds in explaining just why the young actor has achieved the status of an icon and what it is that the image of Dean touches in so many people. Very well illustrated in colour and b/w. This reappraisal of the life of James Dean is illustrated by many previously unpublished photographs. The author suggests reasons why Dean has achieved the status of an icon in the eyes of his fans. David Loehr is curator of the James Dean Museum in Indiana.
