Summary, etc.:
"In 1956, at the age of twenty-five, one year after his friend's untimely death and while memories were still fresh, [William] Bast wrote 'James Dean: A Biography,' a short, now seminal, account of their five year relationship. In 'Surviving James Dean,' Bast boldly addresses the task he began but was unable to do justice to at the time, owing to legal constraints imposed by his publishers, by Dean's studio Warner Brothers, and out of respect for the actor's own family"--Inside cover jacket.
Subject: Bast, William.
Dean, James, 1931-1955
