A Sloppy Piece of Work
It is tragic that Bosworth¿s biography is still the primary resource for people who want to learn about this tragic actor. Bosworth¿s research methods have become questioned, and her conclusion for Clift¿s demise (hiding his alleged homosexuality) has been panned. Bosworth¿s writing is the sloppiest I have read for a bio. She casually describes Clift¿s romantic affairs with no information to back them up. Clift¿s ¿lovers¿ remain anonymous or are given fake names. As for where his sexuality developed, he just went `¿in and out¿ of relationships with men and women. There¿s no reason as to why he went the direction Bosworth indicates. The only area where Bosworth deserves good credit is for her research of the Clift family history, which is deep and extensive. Other than that, this book is undeserving of any praise.
