There's no doubt Wladziu Valentino Liberace had talent (at the age of seven he memorized the full 17-page score of Mendelssohn's music for A Midsummer Night's Dream in one day), but it is for his flamboyant playing style and his extravagant shows and lifestyle that Liberace will always be remembered. Beyond the kitsch, he was known for his tremendous warmth onstage, and from the 1950s to the 70s he was the highest-paid entertainer in the world. This affordable, compact yet attractive little book (just 6 x 6 inches) is illustrated with page-filling color and black and white images chronicling Liberace's life and career, his outrageously decorated cars and pianos, the wild rhinestone- and fur-trimmed costumes, and devoted friends like Mae West and Betty White.
