(price-clipped) [very light soiling to edges of text block, but generally appears unread; jacket shows only very light surface wear, rates Near Fine in external appearance, downgraded to Very Good only due to a somewhat crude job of non-diagonal price-clipping]. (B&W photographs) A dual biography of the pop singer and the actress, by their son. "Drawing on the words of those who knew them -- from George Burns to Dick Clark and members of Bobby's and Sandy's family, as well as conversations with Sandra Dee herself -- [the author] separates truth from myth. He tells a moving story not of two dream lovers but of two flesh-and-blood people who came from humble origins to find glittering fame and each other. Surrounded by the celebrities of a tumultuous era, they were to learn hard lessons about ambition, success, and the things we leave behind when we reach the top." Darin's star rose a bit in the wake of the Kevin Spacey biopic "Beyond the Sea," but now seems to have subsided somewhat.
