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.

For over three decades, the creator of films such as Annie Hall, Manhattan, and Deconstructing Harry successfully maintained his privacy while sustaining his comic public persona based on that private self. Not until his scandalous relationship with Mia Farrow’s adopted daughter, Soon-Yi, did Allen’s precarious balancing act of self and celebrity collapse in public view. Based on exclusive interviews, this sensitive yet rigorous biography reveals the personal side of a talented artist and troubled man.
