My Husband, My Friend - Neile McQueen Toffel

Columbus, 1986, Hardback in Dust Wrapper.
Condition: Very Good - in Very Good DJ. Top edges of text block lightly spotted.

Illustrated with B&W photographs. Presumed First Edition. The story of the turbulent fifteen-year marriage of Neile and Steve - a period during which the 'sixties revolution, with its sexual freedom and its drug culture, coincided with McQueen's own mid-life crisis. It also engendered his need to re-affirm his own masculinity, by playing the Great Lover, and his youth and status as a star in the face of the impact being made by the new breed of actors, typified by Dustin Hoffman, whose looks and style were totally at odds with the old idea of the Hollywood leading man.
