Synopsis: One of the country’s leading authorities on popular entertainment presents an eye-opening and unique biography of two larger-than-life legends—Elizabeth Taylor and Michael Jackson—and their unlikely yet enduring friendship.
From the moment Elizabeth Taylor and Michael Jackson met, they were hooked on each other. He peered into her violet eyes and was transfixed; she, in turn, was dazzled by his talent, intrigued by his sweet-tempered childlike personality, and moved by the stories she had already heard about his troubled early life. Soon a deep friendship blossomed, unexpectedly unlike anything either had ever experienced. Through thick and thin, through their various emotional upheavals, through the peaks and valleys of their careers, through their personal traumas and heartaches, through the unending health issues and extreme physical pain that each experienced, and through the glare of the often merciless public spotlight, their bond held them together, and their love for each other endured.
Donald Bogle skillfully recreates the moving narrative of Taylor and Jackson’s experiences together and their intense emotional connection, without shying away from the controversies that swirled around them. Through interviews with friends and acquaintances of the two stars, as well as anonymous but credible sources, Elizabeth and Michael emerges as a tender, intimate look at this famous “odd couple” and a treasure to their millions of fans.
About the Author: Donald Bogle, one of the foremost authorities on African Americans in film and in entertainment history, is the author of eight books, including the classic Toms, Coons, Mulattoes, Mammies, and Bucks: An Interpretive History of Blacks in American Films as well as two highly acclaimed, groundbreaking biographies: the bestseller Dorothy Dandridge: A Biography and Heat Wave: The Life and Career of Ethel Waters. He adapted his book Brown Sugar: Over One Hundred Years of America’s Black Female Superstars into a four part documentary series for PBS. Bogle has also appeared on numerous television and radio programs. He was a special commentator and consultant for Turner Classic Movies' award-winning Race and Hollywood series.
