Here is a dazzling biographical memoir of one of the most charismatic figures of stage and screen–Yul Brynner–by Yul’s only son.
Yul Brynner was Hollywood’s ultimate enigma, easily the entertainment industry’s most exotic male star. He built a career on the lie that he was born of a gypsy woman and cut his teeth in the wilds of the Siberian taiga. The truth was even more remarkable than that.
Here at last, is the man behind the legend–the half-Swiss, half-Tatar boy who grew up in China and Paris, smoked opium with Jean Cocteau, caroused with gypsies, worked as a trapeze artist, emigrated to America, married a starlet, and embarked on one of the most dynamic double careers Broadway and Hollywood would ever know.
