Susan L. Mizruchi, a professor of English at Boston University, specializes in American literature, cultural history, and film.
"Brimming with colorful anecdotes and details... a wonderfully cohesive work about Brando, both as an actor and a man." -- Publishers Weekly "[Mizruchi is] the first to have access to Brando's private archives, including his extensive library, film archives and research materials... Fascinating." -- Tom Shone - Atlantic "To understand the complete Brando...any future biographer will now have to take account of Mizruchi's Brando as well-to somehow square the lover and the sensualist with the critical thinker." -- Julia M. Klein - Boston Globe "Renowned cultural scholar Susan L. Mizruchi explores the Brando that was not visible to the world in order to better understand the one that was-a Brando that was independent of the public persona and often at odds with it." -- Examiner "The most amazing restoration work on an artist's image that I've ever seen." -- Greg Carpenter - Sequart Magazine
