Ben Falk is a film and television journalist, whose work has appeared in dozens of British and American publications, including Empire, Total Film and on the BBC and AOL. As an entertainment correspondent both in London and Los Angeles, he has interviewed many of Hollywood's biggest names and covered The Oscars, Baftas, Cannes and Sundance. This is his second book.
"Falk obviously has a great deal of respect for his subject, which he weaves throughout this even-handed portrait. Downey's midcareer comeback is also given fair shrift in this absorbing account of one man's amazing triumph over his voracious demons." "Booklist""
