Meet the Author

Tod Robbins actively tried to keep his personal life as secret as possible. Now, over sixty years after his death, there is not only scant information available about him, but a lot of misinformation as well. Exactly how many wives did he have? Some sources say as many as six, but who were they? He also spent World War II in a German concentration camp. In this volume, all of these questions have been explored and answered, including biographical sketches of Robbins' wives and possibly pinpointing the precise camp he was interred at during the war.
