Steve McQueen, King of Cool : Tales of a Lurid Life, Hardback

Steve McQueen, King of Cool : Tales of a Lurid Life Hardback


The drama of Steve McQueen's life far surpassed those that unravelled on-screen.

His mother, a prostitute, seduced him as part of an Oedipal fling.

He'd been brutally molested by some of her customers, endured gang rape at school and worked as a porn performer and escort to the rich.

When stardom eventually arrived, he in turn treated his lovers (Marilyn Monroe, Faye Dunaway et al.) with contempt whilst other sexual liaisons with men developed.

He lived life at top speed and defied categorisation.

His death still remains a source of lurid speculation.
