Errol Flynn: An Epic Life
In his latest book, Kevin McAleer explores the topic of why Hollywood celebrities self-destruct. Flynn, who embodied the classic image of a daredevil hero and romantic lover, had it all: beauty, charm, talent and intelligence as well as affluence and a large following of devoted fans. Capturing Flynn’s life, McAleer also draws inspiration from Lord Byron’s playful Don Juan whose ottava rima stanza he incorporates. Kevin McAleer isn’t the first to navigate his way through the myths and lies of the legend of Flynn though no one else has tried to put the epic narrative of Errol Flynn’s life into verse to date.
