True Myths: Life and Times of Arnold Schwarzenegger
London, Bloomsbury. 1995. (ISBN: 0-7475-2126-3) Hardcover, 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Is Arnold Schwarzenegger a bizarre construct of the PR industry, or is he the product of late-century Aryan supremacism, on a path which will eventually lead him to the White House? What makes him a freak achiever is not just his origin - the only sportsman ever to become a Hollywood superstar, let alone the only Austrian - but his ability to be several pairs of complete opposites: outlaw and establishment warrior; patrician and peasant; untried android and grizzled human veteran; hero and villain. He is universally popular and in a career spanning cops, robbers, hit man, special agents, macho kindergarten teachers and over-sized twin brother, Arnold has become the biggest hero in the world by playing the biggest hero in the world - all of this was written before he became Governor of California!. Very Good/Very Good.
