"Both an outsider (Kezich is one of the best, if not "the best Italian film critic) and an insider (as screenwriter, playwright, and occasionally producer) Tullio Kezich was in the ideal position to write the best biography of Fellini, an analytical study of his work combined with the story of his relationship to Italian cinema and society. Kezich's forty year friendship with the maestro allows him to offer up an intimate and lively portrait of Fellini filled with revealing anecdotes and psychological insight." --Michel Ciment, author of "Kubrick and "Kazan on Kazan
"Trenchant in its critical analysis, engrossing and sympathetic in its account of his private life, Tullio Kezich's definitive biography of Fellini is a revelation. It effaces virtually everything written to date about the Italian maestro. Kezich's intimate knowledge of the man and his work is quite simply peerless." --Peter Cowie, author of "Coppola and "Revolution! The Explosion of World Cinema in the Sixties.
"An extraordinary book that gives the reader a personal insight into the life and the career of one of the purest geniuses of cinema from the invaluable perspective of a close friend and a great film critic" --Antonio Monda, Professor of Italian Cinema, New York University
