Book Review: Liberace

By , January 20, 2013

Peaking past the candelabra, Wladzlu Valentino Liberace is soon to be celebrated in a new HBO movie starring Michael Douglas. That’s right, Michael Douglas. The film is directed by Steven Soderbergh. Parts of the bio-pic were reportedly filmed in the over-the-top, glamorous, frozen in time, Hollywood home of Zsa Zsa Gabor.

Also coming this spring, is Liberace Extravaganza! This book is officially authorized by the Liberace estate. It promises 150 full color photographs of the performer’s costumes. Sketches and behind the scenes stories are also included.

In the meantime there are a few biographies to dust off. The wonderful private world of Liberace  by Liberace and Liberace : an American boy by Darden Asbury Pyron

Cue the soundtrack provided by Mr. Showmanship and his priceless piano. Download from Nashville Public Library’s Freegal collection.
