After forty years in the spotlight as comedian, author, director, and professional neurotic, Woody Allen is a living legend. To fans, his films have always represented a sort of ongoing autobiography. This is the first uncensored biography to investigate one of our era’s most celebrated, distinctive, and confounding filmmakers.

Based on exclusive interviews, this sensitive yet rigorous biography reveals the personal side of a talented artist and troubled man. Download and start listening now!
