Valentino: A Dream of Desire

Copertina anteriore
Carroll & Graff, 2007 - 224 pagine
In this unique biography of the world’s greatest lover, there is much unpublished material to reveal the real Valentino, a man who was sexually attracted to other men and whose relationships with women brought heartbreak and disaster.

Valentino was far less ashamed of his sexuality than he was afraid of being trapped by the image of his public persona. Yet it was his persistent need to prove his “manhood” that contributed to his early death.
